Lulu is taking her finals this week and it is bringing back a million memories for me. When I was in high school I would study at the University of Michigan Law Library with my friends. We would put on our preppiest clothes and soak up the collegiate atmosphere. The long tables in the library were rich dark brown and lit with brass lamps and green glass shades. This was an absolutely beautiful place to study. I think I actually did better on my exams studying in this environment. Lulu wouldn't dream of going to a library to study, she has to be hooked up to her i-pod, online and texting, and she still does incredibly well. Have libraries become obsolete to this generation?
