E-Book Check-out from Local Libraries

The meeting of the township board lasted 35 minutes tonight, largely due to the report from the Kent District Library.  The report included two interesting points not mentioned in my post of yesterday.  First, electronic books can be checked out on-line in e-book format.  The loan period is three weeks, after which the books vanish.  That eliminates overdue charges — which causes the library a bit of concern.  Last year they collected nearly a third of a million dollars in fines.
