The world we live in is on the brink of a major shift; more and more people are beginning to put down their books and magazines and pick up their Kindles, iPads and other e-readers to get their information, reading professionals say. They say print-based publications and businesses are trying to adjust to the shift to online as best they can. However, people seem to be more inclined to scroll through and read something in the comfort of their own home rather than travel to obtain a physical copy. Businesses with magazines, newspapers and libraries are places that one would imagine have been most affected by this shift. The Lansing Library however has managed to roll with the changes and keep most of its members over the years.
