Building on a recent conversation he had with his son, Andrew, who’s a librarian in New Orleans, Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez presents a passionate endorsement of public libraries. “They are about our future as much as they are our past ...,” Andrew is quoted as saying. “The notion that they could be replaced by Google is tantamount to suggesting that Americans are better off with vending machines instead of farmer’s markets.”

You’ll find Lopez’s full column here.
