The BiblioTech

bibliotech-logoStarting today, the BiblioTech will serve all residents of Bexar County, Texas. What makes this $2.4 million library system unique is that it is the nation’s first digital public library, offering an estimated 10,000 titles (provided by 3M Cloud Library) through e-readers. Patrons will also be able to utilize hundreds of e-readers and pre-loaded enhanced e-readers for children, as well as computer stations, laptops and tablets to use on-site.  Additional e-reading accommodations will be made for the visually impaired. Envisioned by County Judge Nelson Wolff, the Bibliotech is based in a predominately Hispanic, low-income neighborhood on the South Side of San Antonio, Texas, where 75 percent do not have Internet access.
