Libraries definitely carry fewer books, which s**ks from the standpoint of being able to roam through the stacks and just look at things that catch your eye. But, OTOH, you can now order books from most college libraries from libraries all over the world and get digital or physical copies. But you need to do your browsing on-line.

My local library (from which I get mostly novels) has a pretty good collection, but long waits for new books, so you can order e-books, which are available on your computer for two weeks. I read most books on-line now or buy kindle versions. I know some folks who won't do this - want physical books - but I enjoy it just as much as a regular book and so much lighter to carry! But I need to do my browsing on amazon. Which is cool. But not really the same as just wandering the stacks and coming across something that looks interesting.

> i've noticed over time, there's less and less books from previous times. I rerember going into a library when i was young, and they so much selection and knowledge, at the time i saw it boring junk that only older people im regretting not reading them. It's 2018, things do go out of style, old ways and knowledge, but i really should of read all those books with knowesge and information about abstract things. Alot of the books from previous time periods, before 1960 are kinda gone
> just depends on the location, but i kinda miss and regret missing out on learning random things in library books, everything now it like monitored. One ... people take books and they don't return them, security reasons. second - where in a new generation and older books are taken off the shelf....for more current ones. I just regret not diving in to all that learning, but i hated books when i was young, they so boring to me. Now i'm older and see it differently
> baseball55 i wanted to ask, do you see any of the older books, or just in general reduced, you work at university i just wanted to know what you think about it
