Bexar Library

Just recently, the nations first completely digital, e-reader only library opened its doors. While the physical library is ostensibly unnecessary, (the entire collection can be viewed from a home computer or other capable device) the space remains important to the community as many in the Bexar area do not have access to computers and/or broadband internet.

“Our digital library is stored in the cloud, so you don’t have to come in to get a book. But we’re a traditional library in that the building itself is an important community space.” –  Laura Cole, BiblioTech’s special projects coordinator

The idea originated with Nelson Wolff, a Bexar County Judge, who had felt that libraries were lagging behind current technologies. Read more about Wolff and Bexar County Digital Library.
