E–reader disappearances put stop to Palmer library lending

“File this story under “crime in trusting small-town Alaska.” Palmer’s public library used to let patrons check out a small selection of $259 e-readers. Then, earlier this spring, a few patrons stopped returning them. Three of the library’s six book-downloading tablets have vanished. The library knows who checked out the two Kindle Fires and a Nook Color, library director Beth Skow said recently. “Now those patrons, their emails don’t work, their phones don’t work and their addresses don’t work,” Skow said. “It’s very, very sad. A few ruin it for the rest.” (via ADN.com)
