If some budget is spent on users who engage the library over the Internet, using their own e-reader ... terrific. The object is to expand reading, access to knowledge, using the library as curator to ensure a minimum set of standards ... a robust e-book collection is not an elitist diversion but indeed fulfills the mandate and original Carnegie vision.


You make a good point. Personally, I was a little shocked that the library even offered ebooks. I'm sure they will continue to expand the selections but I can still see the bulk of the budget being spent on paper.
