Getting rid of the books
The Boston Globe recently had an article about changes that Cushing Academy is making to their library. They’re getting rid of all of the books! They’re replacing them with Kindles, flat screen TVs, and a coffee shop.
Having spent a large part of my college years digging around in the stacks for old engineering books in one of the world’s largest libraries, I can’t imagine what a school without a library full of books would be like.
