Today’s libraries connect e-readers but face roadblock
Nook. Kindle. iPad. La Grange Public Library. You’ve heard of all of these, right? You know that all four deliver digital content?
In fact, today’s libraries offer their patrons more than ever before.
Our library continues to change and offer new services to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities. We do this by selecting locally relevant materials, offering classes on downloading library e-books, hosting and assisting local book clubs and providing recommendations for future reading.
But libraries face a roadblock. For the first time ever, we are unable to purchase some materials our communities deserve. Right now, several of the largest trade publishers refuse to sell e-books to public libraries. As a result, our 15,550 community residents are not getting a fair deal.
