Bilbary to sell e-books via California libraries

“E-book website Bilbary has done a deal with Califa, the not-for-profit co-operative of the California State library service, to offer e-book sales through the service. >Each Califa-served library will carry a ‘Bilbary Kitten’ button on its own website, linking to the Bilbary e-book site. Bilbary founder Tim Coates said: “Our long-term aim is to help public and academic libraries provide e-books to their patrons and to make available the widest possible collection of e-books from all over the world. At this stage the site offers e-books for sale and soon will provide subsidised book rentals to help libraries fulfil their role.”
