“The reason the book focuses on librarians, not on libraries, is that it’s the people in them that make something happen. I predict that the future is going to be fewer libraries and more librarians. The facility is transitioning from places where librarians do their work and to places where communities meet and gather. The physical space is simply where the librarians sit. The electronic medium is where they can research and read.”
