Libraries in the WSJ

An article in the Wall Street Journal this morning talks about a new threat to the public library system, book/DVD vending machines and lockers. I don't think book vending machines will be the end of academic libraries. However, they could be a great way to continue serving patrons beyond business hours and/or an option for reducing service hours. As a bonus the article is about Hugo, MN so that is pretty cool.
