Do School Libraries Need Books?

A debate in the NYT: I am the patron of a regional library that just relocated to a new modern building. There are fewer shelves of books now. There is an enormous room full of computer screens. Very convenient for me, yet likely the signal of a new era. I still wander the shelves looking for serendipity. Its not the same thing as an inexact search ... it's touch and feel and knowledge.
