Am in the UK and the library service is taking a bashing with service cuts, this wont save them, but it mite have a good effect on what the public think about what a 21st century library can offer. " I think its a brilliant idea ".

Thanks for the comment, Jinx.

Yeah, I think the notion that something like this will save a library is incorrect. Convincing government, voters, and universities to invest in libraries, or at least spare them from cuts is a different conversation.

And the 21st century library will look much different than the 20th century library, as the 20th century library varied greatly from the 19th.
