We've gone to the libraries for books, newspapers, and magazines. Now, we go to libraries to learn, to meet, to share. Libraries are now a "learning space" where we go to learn. They supplement the classroom, they provide alternative spaces for learning, for collaboration, for community.
Library services have grown and expanded. Promoting digital literacy, assisting in digital searches, determining the value and worth of dynamic digital resources are a few of the new skills we go to the library to learn.
The demise of the book, and the library, is somewhat premature.
