While I was flying to Salt Lake over this Memorial Day holiday I noticed the girl to my right reading a book on her Nook ereader. She told me she had all the classics loaded on there, because she could get most of them free online. I asked her about the newer titles, but she didn't want to pay for them. Now, this opened a door I like to walk right through!
Five minutes later she was searching for popular titles she could borrow from the library's Digital Media Collection both for the ereader and audio. So, there we were, thousands of feet in the sky, somewhere over Albuquerque and she was busy downloading one book and reserving others to check out when they became available. Our library offers so many cool things I can't resist promoting them even on vacation!
