e-books

  • In 2009, a year after the Orange County Library System launched its e-book collection, the library’s budget was $5 million. About eight percent of that budget was dedicated to the purchase of e-books, while 43 percent went toward print books. The 2012 budget was cut to $4.5 million, and the allocation to e-books doubled to 16 percent. The budget’s allowance toward print books dropped minimally, to 41 percent.
