New Library With No Books

The old song "A Pub With No Beer" is a sad lament, indeed - but what if a nice new library in Texas had no books? That sounds pretty sad too - except that the library will have no physical books; no paperbacks, no hard covers, no large print. It's the country's first digital public library system - oh, and it looks like an Apple store.

The fully digital public library system will be called BiblioTech and is being led by Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff who got the idea for an all-digital library while reading Walter Isaacson’s biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
