People Use Computers at Libraries

Shocking revelation, isn’t it? This article about the new president of the New York Public Library talks a lot about the continued relevance of the library in the communities it serves as a place for people to use computers. Also mentioned is a study conducted by the iSchool at the University of Washington that found that people actually prefer to visit the library to use the computer in many cases because they like the assistance they receive from library employees. Kind of makes you think that the public library still has a place in the world and perhaps reducing staff drastically may not be a viable idea.
