It turns out, a public library completely free of any physical books in San Antonio, available for all those who live in Bexar,is actually going to open. It will be called “BiblioTech” and which actually loan out devices for two-weeks along with eBooks. No books, whatsoever will be available at the library. In fact, it’s been described as “like an Apple Store”. The brand of e-reader is (as of now) unannounced.
As for anti-theft? The man in charge, Judge Nelson Wolff has a fix for that: “We do have your name, we do have your address. You check it out for two weeks, just like a library book. In two weeks, your e-book goes dead, so you won’t have anything worth keeping.”
Seems like a plan. Via: Giz
