There was an interesting scene in last night's episode (The Kindness of Strangers) of Heroes.

In the scene, Claire Bennet is at the dinner table with her family. To get out of a family event to sneak off to see her boyfriend she comes up with the following excuse:

Claire: "I can't. I have to go to the library for a research paper"
Lyle (her brother, sitting on the other side of the table): "The library? Haven't you ever heard of the Internet?"
Claire: "Actually, the research paper is on libraries and how, during the digital age, they're becoming increasingly obsolete for our generation"

What does it say when television shows start to bring up the issue of the relevancy of libraries?
