We’re always having to explain just what the hell we’re doing on the planet when there are perfectly good public libraries with parking lots and drive –thru book return. Atlantic Cities (a superb site) has alerted us to a new rival for the attention of book borrowers: the public-private library. Or private-public library. So we’ll have to justify ourselves in light of two much much bigger concepts. It gives us a headache.
Readers are invited to step up to the comments section and let us know strong their loyalties are to any library arrangement. And whether those loyalties have anything to do with the difference between defined benefits and defined contributions, neither of which has anything to do with knowing the difference between the parliamentary novels and the chronicles of Barsetshire.
