Library 2020 book cover

Complete the following statement however you like, but DON’T BE BORING: The library of 2020 will be ____________________.

With this in mind, thirty diverse, provocative thought leaders (e.g., Cliff Lynch and The Annoyed Librarian, among others) answered Joseph Janes’ call for compelling essays on the future of libraries. They’ll appear in the upcoming book Library 2020: Today’s Leading Visionaries Describe Tomorrow’s Library (Rowman & Littlefield, releasing in summer 2013).

According to Janes, Library Journal columnist The Annoyed Librarian answered by saying that the library will be “just like the library of today, only without all the books, music, and movies.” (Yikes!)
