Can a Library be Bookless?

Nelson Wolff thinks so! The judge and book lover from Bexar County, Texas, was inspired while reading Steve Job's biography to create the first library system that has no books whatsoever:

Wolff and other county leaders will announce plans to launch the nation's first bookless public library system, BiblioTech, with a prototype location on the South Side opening in the fall. “If you want to get an idea what it looks like, go into an Apple store,” Wolff said.

Inspired while reading Apple founder Steve Jobs' biography, Wolff said he envisions several bookless libraries around the county, including in far-flung suburbs. “It's not a replacement for the (city) library system, it's an enhancement [...] People are always going to want books, but we won't be doing that in ours,” Wolff said.
