The Future of the Book

As we get closer to November and the YALSA Symposium, I’ve been thinking more and more about the future of the book and where that will put us librarians in the grand scheme of things. I know that when I was in Library School this was a common topic of discussion and I always blew it off saying “never gonna happen.” People kept telling me that the book was going to be replaced by some form of technology and I never believed it.

About me

I'm the Teen Librarian at the Main Library of the Aurora Public Library System. In the winter of 2010 a teenager got to dye my hair purple & black personally for winning the winter reading challenge. I have an active TAB (Teen Advisory Board) of 10 teens that are mostly in high school. They get so involved that they create their own programs at least once a year.
