Letters to the Arts Editor

The Library Test Kitchen experiment

I just wanted to thank you for your gem of an article (“Harvard puts a new kind of library to the test,” SundayArts, June 16, Anne Gray Fischer). As a lifelong bibliophile, one who laments the loss of wonderful old volumes as conventional libraries atrophy and disappear, I found your report encouraging and uplifting. And I can appreciate the remarkable amount of work that went into this project. Your article is the sort of gem that makes it worth remaining a digital subscriber to the Globe even after I’ve moved far from the Boston area.
