This question always raises strong feelings amongst teachers! If you speak to some English teachers they say that a library is an absolute must in schools, however, i just get them to stop and think a little first. I am not against a library, don’t get me wrong, but i am not sure that they are needed in the traditional sense. Maybe more e-book readers could be used? Maybe newspaper subscriptions could be on an ipad? Maybe lectures from itunes could be listened to in the ‘library’?

What do you  think a library should be in the 21st century?
