A library without books?

Sep 18, 2013

An article at Gizmodo.com discusses a first in America, a library without physical books.


In a America’s first completely bookless public library opened in San Antonio this past weekend. That is, if you define a “book” as words printed on paper pages which are bound together with glue. But if you define “book” a bit more liberally, the new library has plenty them. Over 10,000 ebook titles, in fact. All of which can be accessed from their 900 e-readers, 57 computers, 40 iPads, and four touchscreen tables.
