Places for Ideas No One Has Thought Of &Things Yet to be Invented/Our Future Libraries @iftf /

Librarians and their Libraries have shifted and morphed with us since we had papyri and charcoal, flint and bone. It is our contention that, as our world becomes ever more connected and the individual in contrast senses a growing seclusion and remove, libraries will provide a Commons, a safe Place to be together, and a repository of our past, present and future musings – be they on tape, in a book, in bytes in the Cloud or on a Holodeck. 
Leave it to the brilliant and out-of-the-Box-Aussies to publish this piece “Libraries of the Future are going to change in some unexpected way”, in a Business/Tech section.

from Business Insider Australia

Chris Weller in Business Insider Australia reports from an interview with David Pescovitz, (who has not Tweeted yet has 758 followers on Twitter!) , co-editor  @BoingBoing and research director at the Institute for the Future , that the Libraries of your Future are going to be there with you. 
They might not look like today’s libraries but they will fulfill our deep societal need that will expand beyond our imaginings with information we haven’t yet dreamed of and provide access to technologies not yet invented.
We change, Libraries change and, because we are libraries, they will keep pace and stay with us no matter where we go.
