Awoman, Chris I'm not convinced the article is real. I just found it hysterical.
I do know Google is scanning the library entire works. http://www.newyorker.com/printables/fact/070205fa_fact_toobin
Chris you have a bad habit of making false assumptions and running with them to grossly inaccurate conclusions...
Dude, every use for which you mention the library could be used is provided by other sources.
Cynique, y ustedes tambien, mi madre -- I never said I "wished" the libraries would close. I wish they would adapt to the times and continue to provide resoruces for thse who would not otherwise have them.
I do not want my tax dollars to go toward dusty old buildings full or books no one is borrowing.
They should and can be vibrant centers of community activity New York has MANY such libraries -- Harlem's own Schomburg Center for Research is a prime example.
Me with Lynda Koolish, John A. Williams at the Schomburg (see Chris I do get out the house)
So I do not want libraries to go away I want them to keep up with the times. In fact I financially support libraries with donations.
I should clarify myself, while I have not stepped into a Library to borrow a book in years; I often go into libraries for events, readings, and other cultural activies.
