eBooks aren’t just a fad, they are especially useful for readers with challenges such as sight impairment, dyslexia, or those who can’t get to the library or physically hold a book . Please consider signing the American Libraries Association petition telling Macmillan publishing that limiting access to eBooks for libraries is the wrong move. You can read more about this and sign the petition by clicking the link.
