Lamar High’s library making room for e-books

Houston Chronicle. – “The library shelves at Lamar High School are emptier these days. Principal James McSwain asked his librarian to dump thousands of books to make more room for students to lounge on couches, sip coffee and read electronic books on laptops. Picture the high-end coffee bars down the street in River Oaks. "We didn’t burn books," said McSwain, a former English teacher who admits feeling emotionally attached to the paper tomes. "All we’ve done is move a little further into the 21st century with technology in our library."”
