Libraries - Cool Old Books, Cool New Tech

I could spend hours with Flickr's interestingness feature! I found this great picture uploaded by unfabulous_ena using interestingness. It seems to be part of some kind of postcard exchange program. How cool is that!

This photo reminds me of finding old leather bound reference books in the little volunteer library in my hometown. I've always thought old books were interesting, and finding them on some back shelf is a little bit like finding some kind of buried treasure. I hope that even though libraries keep working to be on the cutting edge, delivering information and services to our patrons with all this new technology, that we'll always have some old leather bound books hanging around waiting for people like me to discover them!
