You knew the day was coming. Here's a look at the first all-electronic public library in the U.S.
Apple's simplistic design scheme for its Apple Stores has inspired the look of several other retail stores, most notably, Microsoft's.
But come this fall, people in Bexar County, Texas will soon have an Apple Store-like experience in bookless libraries.
That's all thanks to Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, who was inspired to create bookless libraries throughout the county while reading Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs.
"If you want to get an idea what it looks like, go into an Apple store," Wolff told the San Antonio Express News.
The first bookless library, called BiblioTech, will be a test and is set to open in the fall on the south side of the county. But these bookless libraries will not replace the current system. Instead, Wolff says, they are meant to enhance them.
