Since reading and books is the theme this week, I’m posting on my book blog, Xingu. Libraries are getting slicker and more high tech. My town’s library is a bit too snazzy for my tastes, though I do love it.
Yet there is something reliable and classic about these older libraries, something soothing.
I’m taking a Library Science course now as part of a career exploration. Most of the issues revolve around technology and competing with the internet. Last week we discussed how and whether libraries should ditch the Dewey Decimal system and organize themselves more like book stores. Share you thoughts on that notion in the comments section.
