Forbes published a wildly ill-informed article on replacing public libraries with Amazon. I won’t waste my time on a rebuttal.

Read EveryLibrary’s response instead.

  1. Yeah…Pam’s a children’s librarian. So Amazon is going to run programs for three thousand kids a month? Provide volunteer hours for teenagers? Bring in musical instruments for kids to play who have never seen a cello before? Provide internet access and advice for poor folks and immigrants and non-English speakers? Let people look for jobs?

    I hate crap like this.


    1. Either it was clickbait or it was written by someone so ignorant of what public libraries actually are that they could not comprehend the fundamental errors in their logic.
