Not sure about the Federal government, but I notice that libraries that have evolved are very popular gathering places. In order to ensure their survival in tough economic times, libraries have had to join the “e-Reader” revolution, serve as a “hot-spot” for web users, a computer lab for those without access to personal computers, a meeting place for public officials and constituents, an after-school gathering place for students, and the center of activity for communities. In the future, I can see libraries transforming into community centers with co-working facilities, adult classrooms, web-broadcasting and recording facilities, a new gathering place now that most bookstores have closed, and the co-habitating space for remote workers.
