Libraries are rethinking their place in their communities and rethinking their entire architecture. Recently, during jury duty, I was asked by a fellow juror, "Libraries? What are libraries going to do now that we have the internet?" Good question. Well, looking at these two libraries (Cushing and Goucher) I think libraries need to rebrand themselves and reimagine what they are to their communities. If not, we will be reading more and more about closures (e.g. Philadephia FPL) and soon libraries will really become an endangered species.
