Plastic has picked up a wire article proclaiming the death of libraries.

I believe this is the 3rd or 4th time in the past week that a link to this story has been posted to LISNews. I've deleted several other submissions in the queue. Since Ben included links to a discussion, I'll let this one stand.

As for the news that libraries are dying...I'm not shopping for my black suit yet.
