Biblioteques San Frontiers

Is it my imagination or are libraries getting modeled on big bookstores like Borders and Barnes & Nobles?

Squirrel Hill Branch--Pittsburgh Public Library



I propose a movement against this. Call it Biblioteques San Frontiers (“Libraries Without Borders”), because the pun is too tempting. If anyone reading this has similar photos of libraries that have adopted this Borders/Barnes & Nobles aesthetic, please post them below in the comment box.
