Jennifer Anne on Twitter: "So here's the thing--I am worried that publishing is killing libraries, and that will, in turn, kill publishing."
Basically, the current ebook publishing model just isn't sustainable ($55 for a file that lasts only 24 months) (although it may be the distributors, not the publishers, at fault)

piLibs C++ :: Inigo Quilez :: fractals, computer graphics, mathematics, demoscene and more
"This is the set of libraries I've been using since 2006 to make all of my demos, experiments and CG activities. These have been used in demoscene productions, art exhibitions, VJ sessions, Siggraph tech demos, and private experiments. They cover everything from OS abstraction to file formats, rendering, VR, sound, meshes, compression, etc. This is not an engine or a framework. It's a set of individual modules, of which I only include a few as I need per project. There's no dependencies with external libraries other than a very few little for VR and sound. Right now the Windows implementation is the only maintained one, and it comes with Visual Studio 2015 projects." (MIT licensed)

Susan Orlean Talks About The Library Book | New York Intelligencer
"When Susan Orlean fishes for a story, she reels in a hidden world. And so the latest delightful trawl from the author of Rin Tin Tin and The Orchid Thief starts with the tale of the 1986 fire that damaged or destroyed 700,000 books in the Los Angeles Central Library. But The Library Book pans out quickly to the fractious, eccentric history of the insitution and then, almost inevitably, a reflection on the past, present, and future of libraries in America. Orlean follows the narrative in all directions, juxtaposing the hunt for the library arsonist — possibly a frustrated actor — with a philosophical treatise on why and how libraries became the closest thing many of us experience to a town hall."

Alan Kay's answer to How could public libraries disrupt themselves? - Quora
"Libraries made their way in the US partly because they provided something not easily found otherwise. Still, it’s sobering to realize that about half of all the libraries in the US by about 1920 were there because they were funded by a single philanthropist (Andrew Carnegie)"
"One of many of Carnegie’s insights is that libraries are not just for access to information, but that they create important social and amplifying roles in their local communities. Better ideas along these lines will make a big difference."
"The progression has been to redefine “normal” downward, and this makes it difficult for unsophisticated people to see the decline (things look somehow better — but they are confusing convenience for content). Today, it’s a bit hard to imagine a force for good to make this happen."

The Libraries that Brought Us to Tears
"The other library that brought me to almost-tears was not because it was the site of a somewhat momentous life event but because of the library itself. Seattle Public Library is a library that I had been reading about for years, and it was the catalyst for my first trip to the US."
