The Future of Public Libraries
Years ago the tech society predicted an end of the public library. Thomas Frey, Senior Futurist (Da Vinci Institute) notes that critics failed to predict the library's ability to reinvent themselves. Thus, libraries thrive well in our information environment. Cities across the continents are investing heavily in public libraries. These libraries contain opulent multistory structures, equipped with cutting edge technology.
Libraries have evolved into interactive research and leisure centers.
Frey further suggests that libraries can reinvent the information experience that could be added to a library.
Frey further prognosticates that library activities will be diverified and varied on a global scale. Frey further suggests that memories of a community should not disappear throughout time.
