Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The well-stocked libraries of medieval monasteries were not in ultra-dense urban areas.

At 20/25 Km/h (comfortable biking speed on a suitable terrain) you just need enough people within a 25 Km radius to provide the necessary demand for the library's services. At the average population density of the EU, that holds about 175k people.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
