Unshelved - the Public Library Comic Strip

Here's a very nice place to go on the internet if you're interested in changes and challenges taking place in libraries. Unshelved claims to be 'the world's only daily comic strip set in a public library'. It's makers are writer Gene Ambaum (yes, that's a pseudonym) and co-writer and the artist Bill Barnes. Much more information available at Primer page.

I particularly like the last few cartoons based on the theme of Internet v Library:

They do sound funny and cool. On a serious though, wonder what will it look like when the libraries are totally electronic and its hard to find a paper edition of anything and everything.
Will hands be able to hold those heavy books, when they are so used to keypads and mouses and may be voice in future....
