E-Books Check Out
Public libraries are embracing e-books, thanks to technological advances that solve rights management issues, and soothe publisher fears.
In March, the Cleveland Public Library, in Ohio, became the first public library to offer an e-book system.
About 1,000 books, ranging from new releases like Michael Crichton's Prey to classic literature, are available as e-books. They can be checked out exactly like non-electronic titles.
