Library experiments with new way to read
The Ames Public Library has a new way to read a book.
Using the ubiquitous computer technology, library personnel are experimenting with an “e-book” and have enlisted 17 patrons volunteers to try it out. The trial will last until July, at which time the library will decide whether to purchase more. It has one now.
“The whole purpose is to find out if people like it and if
we should buy more of them,” said Marianne Malinowski, adult collection manager at the Ames Public Library.
