Say it ain't so!! I went to the library today and the librarian told me(with a sad look on her face) that they are going to automated checkout!! That just doesn't seem right! We don't just check out our books, for pete's sake---I ask for recommendations or discuss what we've read! The librarians are like family! OK--I know I have been using my Kindle to read novels but I still use my library for cookbooks etc!!! What is next?
