    Seems simple enough, but maybe not anymore. In my opinion libraries should carry the classics, whenever possible in hardcovered library binding. 'Best sellers' can have 1 or 2 copies, but should be rotated out on some cycle. There is no doubt that libraries are short of space because of computers and all, our town tripled the size of ours, but they can afford to. That's not true everywhere, but the libraries must remember what their role is.:
