The future remains bright for libraries

“Sandra Singh would not describe herself as a futurist but the Vancouver Public Library’s chief librarian does not hesitate to contradict those who peer into the future and predict the death of the printed word. Such a death also hints at the possible redundancy of such beautiful edifices as the main Vancouver Library, the ninestorey Colosseum that holds 1.3 million items and covers a full block at Georgia and Homer.” (via Vancouver Sun)

    I loved the article, my 3 year old boy enjoys going to libraries, we use it as a community hub and educational space out of his normal pre-school hours. Also, I find an unexplained pleasure in holding a book instead of a tablet ;)

    I work for a company that helps libraries repurpose themselves. Check out our blogs about libraries now a days…
