Thanks for your insights, Richard. You have inspired me to view the library as the archetype of what computer engineers (my original vocation) call "cache" and what must of us now call a "portal." I think that society needs librarians, retailers, and other "cachers" of goods and services, and activities to foster a sense of community and a sense of place.

I wrote a more extended essay on my Nearish Blog (linked above), whose intended audience is initially local merchants.
