Bookless Library To Open In Texas
The new BiblioTech library in San Antonio looks like an Apple Store and will have zero physical books, with it’s content all housed digitally.
Is this a sign of the times? A bookless public library is set to open in San Antonio, Texas, in the fall. It will have no actual books, as the library’s content is all housed digitally.
Instead of stacks of books, “BiblioTech” (a play on the Spanish word for library – ‘biblioteca’) will look more like an Apple store with rows and rows of computers, and there will be e-readers for patrons to check out. Gizmodo reports that BiblioTech is part of a bookless public library system planned for the entire county of Bexar.
