Remember these things? They're called books… and believe it or not, libraries still exist in some schools. This is from a public school and their ‘Media Center’ is pretty sweet. I still like the good 'ole fashioned black and white hardcover or paperbacks. Cheers.

Yes, I can think back to when I was in school and reading books. I'm not a reader...the only thing I read is online stuff about electronics or photography. Great image :))

Great reportage Mike. Yes, books are brilliant and they're available. Great news.

Incidentally, I take it that when you say public school the "public" part means what it says. Here in England there's a strange thing because schools that are called public are actually private; you have to pay fees to attend (as opposed to state schools where attendance is free to any child living within the area). This is a hangover from the days when the only other schools were church schools and you had to be a member of the church to attend the school.
