Yes, is a kitchen still a kitchen without a cooker, fridge or microwave?

With E-books only? no, not in my opinion. As long as libraries have no printed books in the bookshelves, I would not regard them as such.

No.
Actual physical books are what makes a library a library

Imo no, because then it wouldn't be the definition of a library

It shouldn't be, but one of the 'libraries' at my university literally has no books, it's just a big study space with desks and laptops to borrow. It's pretty swish and modern but definitely not a library imo

No, it's just a room with a counter-top.

It wouldn't be a library, it would just be a room with shelves.

That is so true. It is anything else, but not a library. Maybe even a room with shelves, seats and tables, but never a library.
