To answer the question: where there is a librarian in action, there is a library. Books are optional.

Bookless libraries are actually fairly common. They're good. But I offer this note of caution: promoters should not confuse their own level of technological access and that of their patrons. E-books and other electronic resources are awesome, but if a large part of your patron base lacks substantial computer skills, let alone access to e-readers, then realize that you are leaving those people behind.

The menu itself seems odd to modern diners, as half the offerings were meat and the other half sweets... But where are the vegetables and bread?

We had a more civilized and refined cuisine back then before all these "health food" and "living past forty" fads developed.

Yes, but subsequent research showed that even anonymity is optional to create a GIF. This phenomenon became clear when sites began requiring people to log in with Facebook to leave nasty comments.
