1. When libraries become book centers, they will think more about their reciprocal ties to publishers large and small. Libraries have long hosted book groups, but few publishers currently provide advanced copies of novels to book groups through libraries. When publishers understand the marketing opportunities afforded to them by the transformation of libraries into community hubs, they’ll fight for space on the display shelves and the mindshare of the readers.
