Libraries without books? Not here. Not yet.

“Is a library still a library without printed books? A library in San Antonio thinks so and is going completely digital, but don’t assume the idea is headed north of the border any time soon. Maria Cipriano is collections librarian, Electronic and Online Resources, for the Toronto Public Library system. She says that digital demand from patrons is growing, but there isn’t an urgent need to go “bookless.” “I thought the San Antonio library was an interesting concept but it is not revolutionary. We have been offering that kind of service already,” she said.” (via The Toronto Observer)
