Florida Matters Preview: Libraries In The 21st Century

May 2, 2017

These days it seems like we get most of our information from computers and mobile devices. Are libraries becoming obsolete?

This week on Florida Matters we’re talking to people who work in libraries about what might be in store for the future.

In this preview, Florida Matters' host Robin Sussingham talks with Todd Chavez, Dean of Libraries for the University of South Florida and Mark Y. Herring, Dean of Library Services at Winthrop University and author of the book "Are Libraries Obsolete?" They discuss how digital versions of literature, textbooks and even "board books" for young children impact reading.
