    Two items in this morning’s New York Times caught my eye. The opinion piece by Scott Turow is a good companion to Prof. Pattuelli’s post about the DPLA. Writers are not necessarily all that happy: The Slow Death of the American Author http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/08/opinion/the-slow-death-of-the-american-author.html
    The second piece is more of a fun feature: At a Library in Brooklyn, Rare Books and Coffee http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/08/nyregion/at-a-do-it-yourself-salon-in-brooklyn-books-obscure-and-arcane.html?_r=0

      It’s encouraging to see NYT paying attention to independent libraries like Mellow Pages (the library covered in the second piece). It calls into question the way we traditionally think of libraries, librarians, and patrons. A library is made of information, and as long as there is information and people who need/want to be immersed in that information, there will be a place for the wide spectrum of library types.
