Libraries Spending More on Ebooks

A new survey found 69% of libraries plan to spend more on e-books over the next two years.

The future of books is digital, despite what Ray Bradbury believes, and despite the recent front-page story in American Libraries, the publication of the American Library Association (ALA), in which the author counseled libraries to spend less on e-books. Ignore ALA and its magazine, and you and your library will do fine.
