Scanning for groceries, with so much potential for libraries, a photo by ellen forsyth on Flickr.
No, that is not what this says.
I know some libraries are doing great things with connecting people to their collections and services at a distance with scanning QR codes. There is so much more potential which is not being explored yet, and which is being done well (already) by supermarkets as seen in this photograph.
Libraries have a lot of opportunities, and they do not have to be expensive - but they should be creative and imaginative and provide great customer service or connect new clients to collections and services without having to visit the library building.
From a client perspective, the library is wherever they are, and can access it - and this is good.
