Cecilia later said she thought these listening pods look really good, and they make for a good photo. However she never sees anyone sitting in them. While I was at DOK there were two young boys sitting in the listening pod next to this one, and they were happily listening to music. There was another older kid using another one of the pods. I think she raised a good point though. The pods I saw happened to be being used. However, it's stupid for libraries to buy them just 'cause they "look cool." Like the other furnishings at DOK, this looks cool, is functional, is comfortable, and gets used.
Okay, I happened to find an empty one. But still.
