San Antonio, Texas Judge Nelson Wolff is a bibliophile with a surprising mission. Even though he owns an extensive personal library, with more than 1,000 collectible first editions, the Bevar County judge and library board chair has been the torchbearer for a plan to replace the county’s library system with the BiblioTech, an entirely bookless library.kinmanhui

This electronic library will eschew all traditional paper books and instead loan county residents e-readers preloaded with their e-book selections. By sharing e-readers rather than downloading to personal devices, the BiblioTech would circumvent many copyright issues.

Cities in California and Arizon have floated similar schemes, but have withdrawn them due to public outcry. What’s your take on this elitist plan?
