 Costco stores as role models for Internet-era public libraries (caveats
ahead) <http://www.llrx.com/features/costcorolemodel.htm>

*David Rothman* cautions that the rage is to compare everything in creation
to a business. But he urges us to be careful when doing so with America's

everyone, especially the poor, a distinct and resonate differentiation with
the market paradigm.

hear text to speech from them, and enjoy Kindle books, too. And how about
social media, photos, basic video chat, and production of low-res videos?
