Apparently Simon and Schuster announced the launch of a one year ebook pilot program with three of NY Library's systems.
"We are pleased Simon & Schuster has recognized the vital roles of libraries in supporting reading in all its formats by announcing a library e-lending pilot in New York City. As we celebrate the 55th annual National Library Week, it is a particularly fortuitous time for the publisher to join its Big Six colleagues by providing access to e-books through our nation's libraries. We hope that Simon & Schuster will extend its pilot to libraries beyond New York City in the near future. Books and knowledge-in all their forms-are essential. The ALA and our members welcome new and expanded digital access for all."
--Maureen Sullivan, ALA President
