Would You Use a Book-Less Library?

San Antonio could build what has been called “the first book-less public library  in the country,” setting up a library with eBooks, computers and digital readers instead of print.

According to the San Antonio Business Journal, judge Nelson Wolff (pictured, via) and county commissioner Sergio Rodriguez revealed their plans to build the libraries last week.  

Wolff had this comment: “The ever-changing landscape of technology means that literacy is no longer about picking up a physical book and being able to comprehend the words … Technology is changing the way we read, learn and thrive as citizens of the 21st Century.”
