We have entered an age where books seem secondary. Our lives are much more technology driven these days. It is not a rare sight to see somebody reading a book on their Kindle or Nook. So what does this mean for libraries? Well a high school in Houston, Texas, Lamar High School has done something revolutionary. They have thrown out a majority of their physical books, in exchange for ebooks. With all the extra room they have now, they have made their library into a lounge and coffee shop. Lamar’s library offers students access to Questia, where they can access articles and books. The flagship Houston Independent School District school has also reportedly purchased 35 new laptops for the space. According to the principal of the school, “The library is now open from 6:30 to 6:30, a.m. to p.m., and [Principal James McSwain] says the kids are eating it up; they have never seen so many kids in the library before. They only did this a week ago and he says the number of e-books being checked out is through the roof.” I think this is a very interesting change. While I don’t know if I completely agree with getting rid of physical books, it seems like it is a future we may see very soon.
