Dear Jeff:

So a completely "bookless" BiblioTech Library branch has opened in Bexar County, Texas which includes San Antonio. I for one say what in the hell? It defeats the purpose of having physical books & periodicals. Sure we must embrace technology, & its great that 10,000 plus free e-books are available IV Texan library users, but there is nothing like the feel of holding an actual physical book in your hand, or thumbing through a periodical such as a magazine or newspaper. There is the feeling that you are losing the personal touch of communicating with people & writers on paper in favour of a cold & heartless computer screen!

Alamo City,
