On Books, #42

And the library? It can look like the most archaic institution of all. Yet its past bodes well for its future, because libraries were never warehouses of books. They have always been and will always be centers of learning. Their central position in the world of learning makes them ideally suited to mediate between the printed and digital modes of communication.
— Robert Darnton, The Case for Books: Past, Present and Future
