While I have not fostered that kind of social interaction, Iím sure it exists there. Iíve kept to myself, I guess being selfish, and just used the library for media. Maybe I should be more open to those things. I tend to agree with electronic vs. holding a book, but Iíve discovered over time, technology help form change. Look at music. I loved vinyl albums. That whole experience was cool. But I think Iím slowly adapting to the digital age. Hell, even CDís are going away for me.

My library is very busy all the time. Those people are like me and enjoy the experience, but like the article is saying, far more people donít care about libraries or books and that support will dwindle.

But this series of articles highlighted the idea that the library building going away, much like the CD store. I hate that and hate to think that one thing I do several times a week has the possibility of disappearingÖ suddenly. At least this guy is trying to keep it alive or at the very least the libraries wealth of available options open to people.
