library stories

When someone working at NASA needs a new tool, they don't exactly head down to the nearest Home Depot with a purchase order. Because so many of the tools are really specialized, they tend to get custom built to order. Now NASA might create a lending library to cut costs while keeping track of all their ultra-cool custom tech tools.
Books are an endangered species, at least in their current form. But until every book is digitized and available in a database somewhere, libraries carrying physical books still have their place. And the new Grand Reading Room of the Joe and Rika Mansueto library is a pretty crazy version of those.
