WHY are all these books here?

I was sitting in the school library yesterday, waiting for Paco after his afternoon activity.

Looking at the rows and rows of books, some of which, I am sure hadn’t been opened in a long time—or ever—I thought to myself “WHY are all these here?”

Not only does it represent resources which could be better allocated, but they are an under-utilized asset.

Lo and behold, I came home that night and read a GREAT post by Seth Godin (one of MY marketing gurus) on The Future of the Library.

Well worth it.
