Libraries used to be quiet places
where people read books.
Books are not quiet, though.
They speak directly to our
brains and souls.
Now, people talk in libraries,
huddled around a row of computers.
Or they talk on their cell phones,
oblivious to that very personal
tête-à-tête between a book and its reader.
Someday the books may leave to
be recycled into paper towels
and newspapers. The talking will
also leave as the sound waves
dissipate into the ether.
