Piece in Forbes magazine said libraries ‘don’t have the same value they used to’ and cost taxpayers too much.
Librarians are in uproar after an article in Forbes magazine proposed replacing all public libraries in the US with Amazon bookstores.
“The move would save taxpayers money and enhance the stockholder value of Amazon all in one fell swoop.”.
In Texas, for example, for every $1 of taxpayer money spent on public libraries, public libraries return $4.64 to the economy.”.
