That includes a new way to read without actually picking up that paperback. We’re talking about BiblioTech, the first all-digital public library in the United States.
💭 History in the making
BiblioTech first opened its doors on Sept. 14, 2013 as a way to bridge the literacy + technology gaps in the Alamo City. The library has since expanded to three locations and offers an online “library” that is accessible from home (think: digital collections and resources).
Library memberships are free to all Bexar County residents by applying online or at one of its physical locations.
- Genealogy resources to help you look up your family’s history
- Research databases
- A writer’s corner
- Active learning programs like Mango Languages, MasterClass, and LinkedIn Learning
- Spanish language materials such as books + magazines that can be checked out
BiblioTech EDU is a new resource for parents, teachers, and children that offers tools for educational development both professionally and personally. Residents can also receive GED testing at two of its locations.
- BiblioTech East, 1203 N. Walters St.
- BiblioTech South, 3505 Pleasanton Rd.
- BiblioTech West, 2003 S. Zarzamora St.
