The Bexar County Bibliotech all-digital library has passed another milestone on its way to a grand opening in September, receiving its official accreditation.
The accreditation from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission will allow the new library to operate for its first year.
"They’ve been a wonderful supporter for us, very enthusiastic," said Bibliotech Project Manager Laura Cole.
BiblioTech, the nation’s first bookless public library, is now in the construction phase after Bexar County began demolition on walls in the Precinct 1 satellite office this morning.
Come this fall the county will open BiblioTech on Pleasanton Road with more than 10,000 electronic titles that can be downloaded to e-readers or tablets.
Commissioner Chico Rodriguez said BiblioTech is not taking anything away from the city’s current library system.
Bexar County brings the future to the present with approval for an all-digital library called BiblioTech. So are people ready for it? The Medina Lake water level continues to drop, so how close is it to becoming a big dry hole?
