    David -
      Thank you for sharing this - I have more than once thought that some public libraries ought to qualify for partial funding from economic development sources for their support of the small business community - like any service business I`ve met my share of incredibly knowledgable and friendly professionals vs the occasional person who was clearly not "cut out" for that type of work - this is a significant resource for diminishing the digital divide...

    It took them long enough to try to help further economic development, and encourage local small businesses!  Just think of the THOUSANDS of dollars I could have saved if they would have had those books a few years ago... oh well... at least they are making it easier for us now, and generations to follow!
