Some interesting and kind of disturbing statistics have come out of the new Public Library Survey...
The Wimberley Film Festival, sponsored by our library, was a huge success.

I just participated in a webinar sponsored by the American Library Association about e-books and libraries.
If you have tried to borrow books through our Overdrive program on our catalog page, you have undoubtedly concluded that there are not many e-books out there for you to download.
That's because publishers are not wanting to let us buy books to loan to you. I understand that.
But, after listening to an hour's worth of information, I also understand that the issues are far bigger than just the fact that every publisher has its own model for selling to libraries or not doing so.
Just consider what school and college librarians face as they try to buy books for one class for one term, and then multiply that by who knows how much.
I can definitively say the selling-lending situation is not going to improve much any time soon.
And that's bad for all of us.
