| Please sign the petition to keep eBooks in libraries.
Sadly, unlike a regular person, a library cannot pay Amazon or Barnes & Noble for an eBook and then lend it out to people. We can buy a printed book from these companies, place it on the shelf, and lend it out–but digital content is being treated differently by the publishers and the companies who manage digital content licensing. We very much want to offer these eBooks to patrons; however, the publishers’ policies are preventing us from doing so.Think that’s wrong? So do we – Boyd County Public Library is committed to advocating for a change to these restrictive policies and we need your help to do that.
