Technology moves forward and so do your area libraries

(Continued)

While many librarians are die-hard bibliophiles (we still love the sensory experience of a book in your hands), we realize that we’re approaching a generation born with an iPod in their cribs.

So, what does the future of libraries hold? No one knows for sure, but the transition from print to digital is just part of the change we see. It’s not just about books anymore. People come in for all reasons — meetings, programs, computers, studying, and more.

Libraries are living and breathing. The Internet has not killed the library, but instead has changed us, just like it’s changed you.

— Amie Thomas is public services administrator for the Brownsburg Public Library.
