    No. They are being closed down to save money because of cutbacks and the financial crash of 2008 which we still haven't recovered from. Books are very expensive and many people can't afford them or if they can they can't afford to buy the number they like to read and then not use again so filling bookshelves at home wth books that aren't going to be read again.

    That's like saying books are obsolete. Websites are pretty useless to learn about a subject. (They are good for short potted descriptions on narrow subject areas) Wikipedia will reduce a book length biography to a few hundred words. Also it presents information in a random order and not one to help study.

    No and hopefully they never are. They are so beneficial.

    No but I suspect they eventually will be. They might become museums.

    They're getting there as time marches on. By the time my children grow up, they're likely to be a rarity.

    Not yet. I mean, I'm a selfish cow and buy books because I'm a "re-reader," but I don't want libraries to be obsolete. I love libraries.
