Although I get tired of the “I’m doing god’s work” tone of some bloggers, I feel like screaming when I read yet another blog post by a non-librarian saying libraries are obsolete without any evidence to support their postulation. Have these people gone to any libraries recently? And did they ever go to libraries before these institutions supposedly went extinct? Are they saying “oh back in 1990 I used to go to the library and it was so busy” and “now I go to the library and I’m the only person there?” Somehow I doubt it. So before you go assuming that just because your iPhone and your tablet hold a lot of books means libraries are no longer used, go to some libraries a few times a week (like the one where I work for example) before you tell me they are obsolete.
