When we think of a library the image that comes to mind is that of thousands and thousands of books lined up in shelves in a huge hall. But this image is beginning to change with bookless libraries starting to emerge. A bookless library is a library that only has digital books and doesn’t have any real books. The concept is being tried in a few libraries around the world in different formats. BiblioTech in Bexar County, Texas is the world’s first truly bookless library that opened recently. Whether this concept will be better or worse than the normal library concept is still to be seen but there are a few clear benefits of a bookless library. Eventually we might see a middle path emerging where we’ll have libraries that are mostly digital but also house certain number of real books and still give the feel of a traditional library environment.
