Is there a Rosy Future for Libraries?

  • over 1 year ago

It's no secret that Will and Mango love libraries. But are these wonderful institutions built to last? (Our research says: Yes!)

664: The Room of Requirement

  • 4 months ago

Libraries aren't just for books. They're often spaces that transform into what you need them to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It's actually kind of magical. This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required.
