Future libraries will be valued more for services than for book collections



"Libraries will become more participatory, and librarians will serve as information facilitators. As learning and knowledge creation become more collaborative and dynamic, library spaces will be used more for community services and less as a place to store books. Readers will share recommendations and feedback, enhancing the knowledge contained in texts"
