San Antonio's Launching the First Completely Bookless Public Library

San Antonio's Launching the First Completely Bookless Public Library | University of Nicosia Library | Scoop.it
Books, who needs 'em? Libraries? Not anymore they don't. The first public, bookless library is coming to San Antonio soon and, possibly, to a (dystopic?) future near you.
University of Nicosia Library's insight:

The new book-free library, called "BiblioTech," is intended to open in the fall and is part of a an entire bookless public library system planned for the entire county of Bexar. And it's not "bring your own device" either. The library will actually lend out e-readers (of an unspecified brand) for two weeks at a time. There will also be computers and the like, but no books, and presumably no card catalog (!) either.

Το νέο βιβλίο του καθηγητή Τζορτζ Τσερτς δεν θα φτάσει στα βιβλιοπωλεία πριν από τις 2 Οκτωβρίου, ήδη όμως έχει πετύχει ένα σημαντικό ορόσημο:έφτασε τα 70 δισεκατομμύρια αντίτυπα, κωδικοποιημένα σε μόρια DNA.
