Well said. (Who knows? They might even want to browse around for and check out a--wait for it--print book.)

I was at ALA’s Top Tech Trends panel when the Slow Library movement was mentioned by Walt Crawford. Like the audience at the Washington Library Association conference, I too felt glee at just the mention of such a concept.

After reading this post, I’m a believer, especially as I visit and chat with small and rural librarians who remind me that while purposeful technology can certainly open up a world of possibilities, it’s the paper stuff and the warm smiles that bring libraries to life and keep them at the center of communities.
