Are Libraries Obsolete?

Saturday on Morning Edition the director of UMass Amherst's library was interviewed. Listen to this thoughtful discussion about the value of libraries in the age of the internet.

My experience here at LRW Library and at the other libraries I have worked in is that the library is a meeting place either in the academic world or in the town. There will always be a need for community gathering places and the library is a warm and welcoming place for that to happen.
