    Oodi, the new Helsinki Library, has robots to help reshelve books. They get a lot of press attention. But they're not the important part of the library: here's why.
    Thanks to all the team at Oodi: www.oodihelsinki.fi/

Hackerspace, library, kitchen, gaming spot and social meeting place with robots scurrying around. It's a good thing I don't live in Helsinki or I would spend in there every waking minute of my life.

Sounds great and all, but the activities described mean that this building isn't so much a library but a community center or learning annex. In other words, why build a library at all when you could just build a community center or learning annex? What's the benefit of having a library perform non-library functions? Librarians are organizers of libraries, not class instructors or 3-D printer operators, so aren't they largely superfluous at the Oodi? (Obviously you can't see me, but I'm asking not to be argumentative but because I'm genuinely curious).

I wish there was more of a thing in Australia. Perhaps one 'big' community type library like this rather than a bunch of poorly staffed, uninspired, aesthetically unappealing libraries. Probably less in the long term for the government and might help make libraries relevant again.

In terms of access to books 4 the rich etc., unfortunately in Britain you need an address to get a library card, and money to use the internet, so.. homeless people do not have the privellege of public libraries
