Morning Poll: Fewer Books, More Downloads?

As Arlington Public Library contemplates its future, one question that’s being raised is how to prioritize the library’s budget in a digital age.

With more and more library users using e-readers and other electronic means of reading books, some are wondering whether it makes sense to continue devoting such a high percentage of library resources to old-fashioned, hard copy materials (e.g. books and CDs).

Would you want more downloadable content from Arlington Public Library even if it meant less hard copy material?
