Library Dilemma

More on the dilemma that libraries face --  yes, there is more information online, but that is only part of the equation.  You can't leave out books, library-only databases, reader advisory help, reference help, etc.
Read this story about libraries in Cuyahoga County Ohio.  It poses the issues of the "common good."  What should we have as our priority - one mass online library or local branches that offer help.
SEE http://librarycity.org/?p=4653    By the way, Overdrive is one of the major audiobook and e-book vendors that supply content to public libraries.  So we do want to support them - but at the expense of the local branches?  What do you think?
