On January 22 of this year, I had a wonderful visit to the first "bookless" library, located in San Antonio, TX. One important goal was for Bexar County to improve it's less than 50% literacy rate among adults. Adults are permitted to take out readers that speak. They use chirldren's books that allow the user to hear individual words or complete sentences. I was told that an elderly man was brought to tears as he began for the first time to see himself learning English!
