Naked Shelves (Or) A Library Without Books

Cushing Academy library goes bookless

Cushing Academy library goes bookless. This year, officials at Cushing Academy, a New England prep school, have decided the 144-year-old school no longer needs a traditional library. “When I look at books, I see an outdated technology, like scrolls before books,’’ said James Tracy, headmaster of Cushing and chief promoter of the bookless campus. “This isn’t ‘Fahrenheit 451’ [the 1953 Ray Bradbury novel in which books are banned]. We’re not discouraging students from reading. We see this as a natural way to shape emerging trends and optimize technology.’’

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Or, I beg to differ.
