Oops! Nice pic, but it’s just not our (file) type. Please try uploading a .jpg or .png image.

Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    A resurgence of the coffee culture I hope :)

    Very good idea! I hope that also here in Italy can be realized.

    AFAIK here in Sydney Oz they continue to be local government funded, and serve as a valuable resource much used by retired folk, young families with kids who play in the toy section, and the odd homeless person, and me for borrowing books for work topics like computers and travel and reading current newspapers and magazines.

    With our sense of fairness, I am happy for my taxes (local rates) to support community facilities - without it my feeling of living in a pleasant community would suffer.

    Whatever happens, libraries cannot remain as they have been, for all the most obvious reasons.

    This is really retro. In the US libraries started out as voluntary societies, as they may have done in Amsterdam also.
