The bookless library

With eReaders like the Nook Simple Touch and the Kindle Fire HD fast becoming the main vehicles for literature, one library in Texas is embracing the digital age. (Cheers Jamie)







The library, which opened recently in San Antonio, Texas, doesn’t stock any books. Instead, people can load eBooks onto an eReader, take it home and then return it after a few weeks. The library has come up with a clever system to stop the tablets becoming targets for theft: once the loan period expires, the eReader simply stops working. A clever concept, which you might see replicated in a nearby city soon.
