A New Year’s Vision of Libraries as Bookstores - Jamie Larue discussion | American Libraries Magazine

A New Year’s Vision of Libraries as Bookstores - Jamie Larue discussion | American Libraries Magazine | Public Libraries | Scoop.it
“ @ALALibrary asks whether libraries can and/or will make the transition to becoming ebook-sellers. Thoughts? http://t.co/IBMb0KxPew” "Beth Bacon, vice president of content management at Seattle publishing platform Booktrope, posted a piece December 30, 2013, on the idea of libraries as ebookstores. On the surface, there is much to commend it. Many bookstores have closed, and the more than 15,000 public libraries in the United States—more, ALA tells us (PDF file), than there are McDonald's in the country—would seem to provide a nationwide network of distribution, already established, already trusted."
