IN THE AGE OF GOOGLE, AMAZON AND NETFLIX… why do we still need libraries? Kathlin L. Ray Dean, Libraries and Teaching & Learning Technologies University of Nevada, Reno

Then: information was expensive and scarce
Now: information is cheap and plentiful
“A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” Andrew Carnegie
"You want to photograph me eating chicken?“ "Yep." "Well, if I let you, I need you to help me deliver a message.“ "What’s that?“ "I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It’s my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe." Humans of New York Feb. 25, 2014
