Do School Libraries Need Books? (NYT)

Cutout tiles at Times Square subwayImage by promaine via Flickr

A not terribly interesting debate at the Times’s RoomForDebate blog on school libraries and whether they should have books. The discussion (not the right word for a handful of interested parties talking/emailing to a reporter) shaded into future of the book, and “they should both exist!”

(And why the illustration: it’s a tile cutout for a mosaic in the Times Square subway station: there was no There There.)
