<a href="http://www.city-journal.org/2010/eon1112df.html">The Library as Amusement Park</a> Public libraries betray their mission in embracing video games. Only those who haven’t checked out a book in the new millennium would be surprised that the public library is now making video games available. The image of the urban public library as a citadel of culture and quietude shielding patrons from the noisy, dumbed-down, digital world outside has taken a hit in recent years.
