Washington Post article addresses shift from print to digital
The Washington Post published an article on July 7 that addresses the shift from print to digital books in public libraries. The writer interviewed Federation President, Susan Haight. Here is Susan’s quote from the article:
In the District, where the collection of print books has fallen 39?percent since 2009, Susan Haight said she’s found that her generation — she’s 66 — is willing to give e-books a chance.
“Libraries are leading my generation to this stuff,” said Haight, who is president of the Federation of Friends of the D.C. Public Library. “They have a responsibility to do this, and they want to help people with this.”
Where are the books? Libraries under fire as they shift from print to digital.
