County Tax Hike: Build a Bonfire, Not a New Library
"But residents should not be paying a library tax to build community centers. The library district needs instead to tear down the buildings it has, and start planning to sell off the buildings, and land, and go out of business when there are no longer ink-on-paper books. A Library Science degree will shortly go the way of English and Journalism degrees, as worthless pieces of paper. Soon, the Internet—and technology in general—will do what author Ray Bradbury predicted in his novel Fahrenheit 451 about futuristic America, where all books are banned and those found are burned. We are now slowly getting rid of books without any fires."
