This link is to an audio conversation about a new library for a small college in Baltimore. Called the Athenaeum, it will have — in addition to books — a huge atrium/amphitheatre, a restaurant, an art gallery, treadmills and showers. Is this a harbinger of libraries to come? http://chronicle.com/media/audio/v55/i14/techtherapy/ Here is a link to the site for the new Athenaeum. http://www.goucher.edu/x17081.xml
