Want to know what a library created by Apple might look like?
A public library in San Antonio, called BiblioTech, has become the U.S.’s first bookless public library — letting patrons check out five e-books at a time either on their home devices, or using the tablets or one of the 48 iMac computers featured in the Apple Store-inspired library.
Within a year, Wolff (who is in his seventies) managed to launch the library in poor part of San Antonio with limited Internet service. Initially there were 10,000 e-books available — which has since increased to 20,000.
Wolff says that he hopes to bolster the collection with an addition 10,000 e-books every month.
