It's coming to a lot of libraries, and in fact many have this service. The problem is that they must buy another copy of the book to make it available electronically. In a time of tight budgets, this means that it can come down to either having 2 copies of the same book or 2 different ones on the shelf. I've found in trying to get books for my 8-year old to read on her Nook, the children’s selection electronically is pretty much nil.

Yes, it's my $260 10" Viewsonic G-Tablet. Sure it's wifi only, but I have instant portable entertainment for 3 children with only the sunk cost. Even my 3 year old has figured out how to bounce back and forhte between the Angry Birds versions to get the one she wants. And I'm not shelling out $40 bucks a game either for a DS cartridge.
