The 21st Century Library is an interesting commentary with reference to the ALA keynote address by Andrei Codrescu and in preparation for a NPR Talk of the Nation topic on libraries.
Talk of the Nation is supposed to discuss the "Bookless Library." The blurb states: "Information technology changes as soon we think we understand it. We look at how libraries keep up and redefine their role. How would you design a library for the 21st century?"
I was unable to locate the program or blurb on their site. It may have been postponed or something but should be worth listening to or reading over the transcript if or when it becomes available.
Update:"This program has been postponed
due to the unavailability of a key guest."
