A listener’s response to bookless libraries

This final note today — more of a comment, really — on the interview we did yesterday about the bookless library they’re building down in San Antonio. All iPads and e-readers, not a hardback in sight.

That doesn’t sit too well with Elaine Amsterdam Farley in Sand Point, Idaho. Listen to the audio above to hear what she had to say.

And I’ll tell you: I go to bed with my iPad every night, but amen, right?

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
