South Side leaders embrace bookless library proposal. (mysanantonio.com, 1/11/2013)
Excerpt: The county has no library system, and Wolff acknowledged the start-up costs haven't all been calculated, but he's counting on private-sector donations to support the endeavor.
According to a January 11th news release issued by the Bexar County Commissioners Court, ... residents with their own e-readers or tablets would be able to access the collection remotely once they have a library ID. The location also will have study spaces, meeting rooms and a designated interactive children’s area. The center will be open 7 days a week. Eventually, Judge Wolff would like to see the BiblioTech concept expanded to other areas of unincorporated Bexar County.
Wolff notes, perhaps spoon-fed by BiblioTech, that the bookless library concept is taking hold in academia.
A bookless library is likely to have broad appeal.
It's clear where to place Bexar County on this graph.
