Summary/Abstract: In the first part, the author discusses the question of read- ing and reading culture in Serbia, the difference between readers and non-readers, the essential importance of read- ing to the survival of the individual. In the second part, the author considers the challenges facing libraries today, the need of their adaptation to a new information environment, the evolution that is so profound and far-reaching that it is almost revolutionary by its character, the virtual world that becomes more real than the physical one. In the third part, the author shows that libraries do not serve only living men, but also robots, reffers to the secret of success of the Na- tional Library of Serbia and concludes that changes are so radical that they actually represent a revolutionary shift.
