“All Things Considered” considers the future of libraries

April 5, 2011

Will the youngsters in this picture enjoying the children’s room at the Evanston Public Library grow up to think of a library as a “temple of books?” If the current trend of
the digitization of reading and research continues, they may not even have to visit a library to be regular patrons. This very interesting story by NPR’s Lynn Neary on the future of public libraries ran yesterday on “All Things Considered,” and explored how the digital revolution is compelling librarians, publishers, authors, content providers, and IT professionals to be innovative and even daring in creating the library of the 21st century.
