Recently the local library in the town where I work announced that they had bought 15,000 e-books and intend to eventually go completely to a paperless format. Is that realistic for a library? They boast that there will be no hold lists for books, patrons will be able to just check out what they need to their e-reader but what about those valuable research texts on which kids rely to do term projects?
What about textbooks in general? I don’t know about you but when I attended University, textbooks were a big cost.

Is this not another way to make education inaccessible.
Check out the information below. I found this chart fascinating.

Death in the Queen City: Clara Ford on Trail, 1895 by Patrick Brode is the story of Frank Westwood who was gunned down in front of his home that he shares with his parents in Parkdale, Ontario, on October 6, 1894. The 18-year-old lingers three days before dying and the police have few leads. A single tip leads the police to Clara Ford, a 33-year-old seamstress of mixed race. Clara claims that she killed Frank, but did so because he had attempted to sexually assault her. In a highly sensational case that stands as a intimate look into Victorian Toronto, would Clara be convicted or would an admitted killer go free?
