I tried, o yes I tried not to, but word was there and open and the internal monologue wanted to be released.
Over the interwebs today came an article about Tauranga City Libraries having charges for their eBooks:
“Tauranga City Libraries is in the final stages of tweaking the software that will enable people to download eBooks for a small fee.”
I read that and was grateful I was sitting down. It’s a joke right? No? Okay….
While I can guess at the arguments for this decision I don’t agree with it. I think it will be a retrograde move that will put eBook use from libraries back rather than forward. I will of course be ecstatic to be wrong!
