I heard lots of talk about how we need to do things to entertain kids, but, the question is "what is a public library?" Is it really a community meeting place? No, the town hall is.
Should it be a place to enjoy a book and a coffee? God no, do that at Barnes and Nobles.
A library is a place that the government provides to store media and information for public use.
“No. That’s what Google is!”
Anyway, as I said before I hestitated with great reservations in even posting this here since the writer obviously ... (rest of comment editted for censors). But it is sad to think that libraries have staff that actually do still think this way. No wonder some libraries continually fight an uphill battle.
