New Yorker Cover Says It All

This week's New Yorker cover ...a picture worth, well, a lot of words.

The image is entitled "“The Library: Roaring Into the Future” by Eric Drooker and it depicts the two famous lions, Patience and Fortitude, protecting the entry to the Main Building of the New York Public Library (the Stephen A. Schwartzman building) currently celebrating its hundredth birthday.

Beautiful, but gloomy. Is this what the future holds for public libraries, all libraries?
