The Vancouver Public Library: Thriving in a digital age
It’s not news that the public library in the 21st century is a very different place from the days when stern librarians and cathedral silence presided over the great treasure house of books that dominated its services until the arrival of digital.
Even so, at a time when the Internet is king, bookstores are disappearing and some question whether physical books themselves will exist at all in the not-so-distant future, the Vancouver Public Library is not only hanging on but thriving.
