These days we seem to be spending a lot of time envisioning what the future will be like. This certainly is the case when we consider global warming, climate change, population growth, water depletion, energy sources, to name just a few.
Planning for libraries of the future is something that is going on very seriously in many parts of the country at this time. The library of the future is going to retain most of it's old roles and yet have many new roles to fill in our society. (And probably have to do it with fewer people and less money).
It's humbling and frightening!
