e-Readers Cutting into Orlando Libraries

Posted: May. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Orlando libraries are having a hard time dealing with the demand of its digital library content, which has similar limitations as a regular library but doesn't require the traveling or searching for books required when going to the brick-and-mortar library, prompting many people with e-readers to check out far more books than they normally would.

For 25 years, Jennifer Krantz had been a frequent visitor to Orange County libraries, borrowing everything from mysteries to cookbooks to romance novels.

But since her boyfriend bought her an Amazon Kindle Fire tablet at Christmas, Krantz, 37, now rarely steps inside a public library.

"The library's e-book service is great because I don't have to park, walk to the library, find the book and check it out," said the accountant. "The only complaint I have is that I have to wait longer than usual for an e-book because the library seems to stock few digital copies of the titles I want."
