Do School Libraries Need Books?

This week, the New York Times' Room for Debate blog asked that very question, with commentary from the following individuals:
* James Tracy, headmaster, Cushing Academy
* Matthew G. Kirschenbaum, English professor, University of Maryland
* Liz Gray, library director, Dana Hall School
* Nicholas Carr, author, “The Big Switch”
* William Powers, author, “Hamlet’s BlackBerry”
What do you think?
