Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. That's still more sustainable than having everyone keep dozens of books at home, with duplication, when they are not reading them.

  2. You don't have to have all the books in one library. The 175k figure is just an estimate of the number of people in the catchment of any given library even in a rural environment.

  3. How big of a building do you need to store 1m volumes? A back of the envelope calculation tells me I can accessibly store 1m volumes in a 3-storey building with a 40m x 25m footprint.

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