A Library That Lives

After reading Maureen Dowd's NYT's article, A Woman Who Found A Way To Write, (a sentimental and historical story about her mother who passed away over the weekend) it made me think about the wonders of libraries and how we can keep the tradition of the library alive while we embrace and integrate the digital age of information and pass it to the next generation. Dowd writes, "Mom was not famous, but she was remarkable. Her library included Oscar Wilde, Civil War chronicles, Irish history and poetry books, as well as "Writing to the Point: Six Basic Steps," and the 1979 "Ever Since Adam and Eve: The Satisfactions of Housewifery and Motherhood in the Age of Do-Your-Own-Thing.'" 

What's in your library the next generation should/must read?
