Okay, library supporters, before you take offense at my continued use of the “damn library” reference, consider that perhaps some readers and I have adopted it as a term of endearment.
Anyway, the library will celebrate its grand opening July 17. I’ll keep you posted as I get more details on what this extravaganza entails. Sorry to library naysayers, but I like how the library is looking. I drive along Civic Drive towards Walnut Creek Intermediate every morning. I catch a glimpse of it through the branches of the trees outside City Hall and Civic Park, and I think its design fits in nicely with the setting.
One wonders with the introduction of the Kindle, IPads, and the whole concept of e-books, whether real books (you know with paper and bindings) will become a thing of the past--or if the whole art of bookmaking will transform into something digital.
