I agree with neilh, but think it'll be much sooner than 20 yrs. There will still be special libraries, like local studies and subscription libraries. But public libraries are changing, books are becoming a smaller part of the job and computer skills are becoming a larger part.

Lost Keys

Lost keys (house and car on a small bunch). Somewhere around/between the leisure centre and the dog beach by Rockstone. £10 reward or charity donation if found. You can contact me here, Eyes of Dawlish, or in the library. Thanks Joanne
