    I got an email from my library about that too! I was a bit upset. It alienates people who don’t want to carry about actual books, or are traveling. I know publishers are restricting new copies because they are afraid to lose money, but it just makes people less likely to read the books.

      I’m pretty much reading only ebooks right now, so it really affects me. It certainly doesn’t encourage me to buy any books! That’s so great that your library is publicizing; I’m worried that people will blame the libraries, and then maybe not want to vote for future levies, when it’s not their fault at all.

        That would be horrible. After all, you can’t blame the libraries for the publishers decisions.

    I’m not a fan of ebooks, so I don’t keep up with what’s going on in that world. That being said, most of the readers I know do the ebook thing and this is going to impact them negatively. I don’t like that one bit. I want people to read books, in whatever format floats their boats. And this is clearly a way to slow them down. Thanks for the info.
