BiblioTech, Bexar County’s bookless library, is moving right along, with an expansion of the previously anticipated collection of e-readers going up to 700 on-site instead of the previously reported 100.
“Just talking to people and seeing the reaction we were getting in the news, we could see that we needed to go up in numbers so we don’t get an immediate waiting list,” said Bexar County spokeswoman Laura Jesse.
Jesse noted that multiple foundations reached out to see what they could do to assist the development of BiblioTech after the media attention surrounding the initial announcement.
