There’s been a bit of hoopla lately about creating a massive “digital library.” I don’t know about anyone else, but the concept doesn’t do much for me at all. Now, if you’d like to look at what some REAL libraries look like, follow this link over to Mental Floss and take a gander at some of the most beautiful libraries you’ll ever set eyes on.

    Here’s a sad thought … the next generation won’t know what the feel of paper is, nor the smell of old books, nor the warmth of your favorite book. Yes, we lost the beauty of the real library. Well, at least we enjoyed them. Cheers

      I couldn’t have said it any better. Sad, indeed. We lovers of books and libraries need to do all we can to promote our local libraries and book shops. It’s so important for future generations. I appreciate your comment!
