"And don’t you know, sisters and brothers, it is as a storage place that the library is going to die. For in a world grown - that’s right - increasingly raucous and cacophonous, the critical, instant information, communication, and education that the non-elite among us will need to survive will not come from the soft rustle of pages and the quiet stir of thoughts. Save all that for those who have already made it, working in the university libraries, the law and medical libraries, the scholars’ archives. But try to sell a people’s library on the appeal of slanting falls of light - and, honey, that light got to fall on empty chairs."
