This is an interesting article on ebook use.  Yes, BCPL offers ebooks (46,000 of them) and, yes, there are often long wait times.  But we are working to alleviate that by committing 11% of the materials budget to this format.  Do you read e-books from the library?  Why or why not?  We’d like to hear your comments on this subject.
