Cheers for my downtown colleagues

When Did Ann Arbor's Library Get So Cool?

My friends and colleagues at the Ann Arbor District Library are super. They are cool. They are a model not only for other public libraries, but for all types of libraries and for other public institutions.

Should this be a disclaimer? I'm a patron of this library. As a user, I love it, and I'm a user of libraries in the addictive sense of the world. I'm at my local branch multiple times a week, and my husband and I churn books, music CDs, and DVDs through our accounts regularly and consistently.

As a librarian and library director, I see this a model and a goal. If all libraries were this good, would anyone be talking about the obsolescence of libraries?
