Study ties Bibliotech use with success in school[/font]

SAN ANTONIO - It was the country's first bookless library. Two years later, is Bibliotech doing what it set out to do - help kids with their education?

Librarians teamed up with UTSA researchers and found there is a relationship between using Bexar County's Bibliotech system and success in school.

"We are part of a south side home school group and we meet here at Bibliotech," Marisa Torres says.

Her small children now have technology at their fingertips as they play educational games on tablets. She says Bibliotech is opening up the digital world.

I especially liked this quote:

"Bibliotech was their treat, which was really incredible," Eklof says. "They did their chores, and then their mom let them come to Bibliotech."
