My friend Richard is a librarian — yes, a real-life librarian — out in Illinois. I love reading his reflections about building and resourcing his local community. He is passionate, talented and has a wonderful sense of humor.

Recently, he posted about a person who was looking for a “video rental store but for books.”


Is this what we’ve come to? Are we such a Netflixed and TiVo’d culture that we have forgotten the old brick and mortar local library?

But enough hand-wringing… more fail!
