For folks with a tablet or other kind of e-reader, the public library is a bit different. For one thing, it’s mainly in cyberspace and browsing the virtual shelves takes more than a little getting used to. On the plus side, it’s open 24/7 and if a title is available for lending, you can be perusing it within moments of making your selection.
I’ll admit that the virtual library has other differences from the public library – for instance, most of the titles have a shorter loan period and if you place an item on hold, it is extremely likely that it will be made available to you when you simply have no time for it. But browsing the shelves is a bit easier as you can use the tools of cyberspace to narrow your search to exactly what you want. I managed to download and read 4 books in a week’s time.
So if you have a tablet or similar device, I suggest you go online and discover your library again. After all, that’s what it’s there for.
