Here at Mosio, we love to hear about ways libraries going digital. One consistent technology trend that is driving up circulation numbers across the country is e-books. West Virginia public libraries are finding that their patrons want books in every form they can get them, from paper to audio books to ebooks. The variety of options is bringing people in the door.
