Libraries, those bastions of print tomes lining shelves are surprisingly embracing eBooks. In a recent survey from ebrary, (a company that provides statistics for libraries) found that “92%” of librarians responding to their survey regarded giving offline access  to eBooks as “more or equally important than  providing online access.” Librarians have long been on the front lines of teaching literary technology to the public.

Many libraries offer free programs on how to use eReaders, how to access their eCatalogs and how to easily download your eBooks.

The survey also noted that the average check-out for eBooks was 8 days and the average patron checked out 4-5 titles.
