Future of Libraries post

Go – read infommuner’s post titled The Future of Public Libraries. Then discuss.

I loved it – first off, telling a long story that delivered a message rather than the usual powerpoint with pictures of people doing techie stuff – that’s so cool!

But even better – his story really DOES illustrate what’s going on in libraries and with the whole web 2.0 trend. People aren’t just reading webpages… they’re not just finding articles someone else wrote and printing them off. People are communicating – they’re interacting with each other… they’re writing their OWN articles. They are connecting with each other.

And this is what a library should be about.
