A Bookless Library?

An all-digital public library will be opening in Bexar County, Texas this September.  The library, aptly named BiblioTech, will offer 100 e-readers that can check out any of the 10,000 e-book titles offered.  This is a unique project for the economically challenged county because they’ve never had a public library service before.  With the benefit of being low-cost, if this library takes off it can become a county-wide scheme.

Would you go to a library without any physical books?

For more information about BiblioTech, visit BBC News, Texas Public Radio and The Huffington Post.
