Are Libraries Doomed?


Are Libraries Doomed?

"Our librarians will find a way to make life better for us. Their working in a library building as we know such is doubtful. There won’t be a library for us to go to. We’ll be ordering e-books and other media from them by computer. They’ll send them to us by computer. Will do everything by computer. Probably we’ll never see a librarian face to face. In fact, the process may be automated. I’m optimistic. I’m all for progress. But I’m glad I won’t see this progress. I treasure my memories of my good times in public libaries big and small, near and far. Good times beyond count."
