Libraries in a Tough Economy...are we winning or losing?

I read this entry (and watched the video) from ALA TechSource, and I just have to comment on it. Yes, it makes sense that, in this economical climate, libraries are booming with business. Free books, free movies, free Internet...sometimes free entertainment for the family. These are all important reasons libraries exist. Yet...aren't we still victims of this economy? Less money means less jobs...or lower-paying jobs.
