Partnerships: Second Branch of BiblioTech “All Digital” Public Library Will Open in a San Antonio Public Housing Project
A new partnership between BiblioTech (the all-digital public library in Bexar County, Texas that opened 15 months ago) and the San Antonio Housing Authority will establish a new BiblioTech branch (BiblioTech West) in the Gardens at San Juan Square public housing project.
The facility will be the second walk-in branch for Bexar BiblioTech. The county-operated system was launched 15 months ago with a main branch on the South Side, becoming the nation’s first public library system created without physical books.
The system now operates kiosks at several locations. BiblioTech West will be the only facility with the same array of services as the main branch on Pleasanton Road.
No construction/opening dates were available.
