Libraries and Books in the Digital Age We'll discuss the mission of Public and University Libraries in the digital age. How are Kindles and devices like them changing how libraries operate and how they're valued by their patrons? How will the Google Book Project and other programs that digitize millions of books affect the future viability of libraries? Join us for a conversation about how libraries are handling these issues. Guests Charles Brown - Director of Libraries for the Public Library of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Stanley Wilder - University Librarian for UNC Charlotte Sarah C. Michalak - Assoc.
