Google may have replaced the Dewey Decimal System, but libraries are thriving again. The quiet rooms of reference and "shh" have evolved into thriving community centers and clicking keyboards. Workshops on saving money or retirement planning are standing-room only. In these tough times, many people are reporting to the library instead of work to plot their next career move. Circulation is up but besides books, families are checking out toys, video games and downloads to their iPods. How libraries are meeting new demands, Friday at 9 on 90.3.
