Library without books

On the Gen Xtinct Facebook page and in Brian's and my books, we focus on things that are slipping out of our lives, from pay phones and pen pals to metal lunchboxes.

Here's another one I honestly didn't see coming: Benilde-St. Margaret's, a Catholic high school not far from the one I attended in the Twin Cities, has hardly any books and magazines in its library. Kids don't use books for research any more, they use computers.

I get it, but it's one of those moments that screams, TIMES ARE CHANGING.
