For one Boston Prep school, the satisfying turn of the page and row upon row of books have been replaced by the calculated clack of keyboards and endlessness of the internet. As the modern library it seems, contains no actual books.

For one Boston Prep school, the satisfying turn of the page and row upon row of books have been replaced by the calculated clack of keyboards and endlessness of the internet. As the modern library it seems, contains no actual books. The Cushing Academy has donated most of its catalog of 20,000 books, purchasing $10,000 worth of Amazon Kindles, which equates to 18 devices, to take their place. In total, the new learning center (apparently the term ‘library’ was outdated too) will include some $500,000 worth of upgrades.
