Of course you have to question how many of them use the library for any reason, let alone to borrow e-books.
I on the other hand couldn’t be more proud of the American public. Way to recognize the library as it was originally intended.
Sure, you’ve probably never set foot in one (and to borrow an e-book you won’t have to), but good for you. You know they have books in there. Congratulations.
That’s one step in the right direction for this crusade towards literacy. Here’s hoping there’s many more behind it, even if they do involve that most-wretched of unbound reading devices–the e-reader.
The first step is awareness, now do something about it. Borrow a book (of e-origin or otherwise). Next step? Read it.
