I thinks it's like complaining that the library bought a conventional paper book, when they could have purchased it via Overdrive. In the latter case, blind patrons would have a number of viable although imperfect options.

Every purchasing decision a library makes favors some members of the reading public over others. Whether American librarians are such nice liberal people that they can be trusted to properly balance competing patron interests without much federal oversight is the kind of purely political question I nowadays try to stay away from on the internet.
