forward thinking

We had an Adult Services meeting today, and some very interesting thoughts about technology in libraries were raised. When I was giving an update about ListenIllinois someone inquired whether patrons could download books onto their own mp3 players. I replied that it wasn’t possible yet, but that it will (hopefully) be available soon, and that this would be ideal. Another staff member came back with, “Yeah, imagine if patrons had to check out a CD player every time they wanted to check out a CD!” That was exciting for me to hear.
