Who goes to a library?
Libraries are where pay phones are. Obsolete.
Close the libraries, auction off the books and send that cash to the State Capitol.

Not yet obsolete... the Solehi library more often than not is a busy place. Especially useful in these tough times. I chose to cancel my home phone and internet. The library gives me a place where I can still go online for career builder, email, etc.

The library has become little more than a glorified computer lab for many people.
For low income people who can't afford a cell phone, there is a government subsided program SafeLink that provides a cell phone and service, including texting and voice mail, at no cost.
And as for applying for jobs on-line, mnay counties and cities in the U.S. have local job career centers that can help in that process.
Most libraries will cease to exist in the near future. And for those that do survive, many will become akin to community centers with little emphasis on books.
