As part of our week-long series about tech and reading, we’ve already heard about how new gadgets are changing reading in school and how they’re changing reading education at home.

Today we hear from Courtney Young, president of the American Library Association, on how they’re changing libraries. From services libraries offer to the actual layout and contents of some brick and mortar library buildings, new tech has had an impact.

Young says that it’s important for libraries to change with the times, but that one challenge for librarians is making sure patrons are aware of new services. Also, keeping up with high costs.
