The inception of the Internet and Augmented Reality (AR) technology has instituted a cultural and cognitive shift in Western society. Innovations such as Google’s search algorithm and Apple’s integrated voice search assistant Siri are rapidly becoming the librarians of the future. To stay relevant, libraries need to identify the key needs of the community and develop a targeted service that answers those needs. The progressions that threaten the library’s existence are the key to its evolution. AR applications can be interpreted to increase the library’s reach and engage an increasingly disassociated community.
