here* just wow. wow on my part.
I hope libraries are hear to stay. I would like to see them become more interactive though and I believe I should explain what I mean by "interactive." People are social creatures in general...if you take unsocial imagery associated with libraries of the past, then this should invigorate library patronage. Adding free wi-fi, a coffee shop, book readings, workshops, group study areas, free book downloads that expire after a certain amount of time (this would also eliminate the problem of the book being out of stock since it would be able to be downloaded infinitely many times in any particular time-frame...and NO LATE FEES!!), etc. this could theoretically make libraries more attractive. I love my books and I'll be sad to see hold-in-your-hand-smell-the-pages books go out of style, but it's the digital age and times are changing.
