What non-librarians think of libraries

Rhonda Gonzalez is asking about the top myths about libraries.

One of the things we tried for Library Week here was an "In 2017, libraries will be..." display - shamelessly stealing the idea from National Library's LIANZA 2007 campaign and asking students what their vision of the library in ten years time will be.

Answers so far are on Flickr. We haven't got a huge number of responses, but we'll probably leave it up for another couple of weeks (ie until the end of exams) to see how it grows.

I'm now thinking towards next year's Library Week - say, a display showing "a day in the life of a librarian" with all the things we do in a day beyond issuing books....
