What do you think about this
? A Pennsylvania library will be running an experiment in April. They will be the first library to loan out Kindles to their patrons.
It's an interesting concept. Offering digital materials will save on space, allowing libraries to stock more materials then they normally have room for. It will also be feasible to provide materials they traditionally would not have purchased.
There's risk involved, too. Should they only be offered to patrons with clean check-out records? Do deposits need to be made?
What are your thoughts? Would you check one out?
