Texas County Taking Books Out of Library

Bexar County, Texas, is planning to open a library that will offer only e-books, along with a variety of devices for reading them.

The county will open an initial "BiblioTech" in a 4,989-square-foot space that will include study and meeting spaces, and a children's area.

People will be able to access books with their own e-readers or check one out for a limited period of time.

The library will offer 100 e-readers, 50 pre-loaded enhanced e-readers for kids, 50 computer stations, 25 laptops, and 25 tablets on-site use.

The collection will include 10,000 current titles and access to tens of thousands of classic titles.
