Even in Nook and iPad age, home libraries still in demand

In the age of the iPad, has the home library become a quaint relic of the past, more often encountered in a novel than in real life? Not according to a number of architects interviewed for this article. Although their clients read e-books on Kindles and Nooks and iPads, they still own substantial numbers of books. When they can afford it, a special place in the house for a bona fide library is not an unusual request. If the budget does not stretch that far, homeowners still want bookcases incorporated into their living spaces.
