Simon & Schuster And New York City Public Libraries Partner For Ebook Pilot Program

  • Simon & Schuster announced the launch of a one-year ebook pilot program with three New York library systems. In response to the news, American Library Association President Maureen Sullivan released the following statement: “We are pleased Simon & Schuster has recognized the vital roles of libraries in supporting reading in all its formats by announcing a library e-lending pilot in New York City. As we celebrate the 55th annual National Library Week, it is a particularly fortuitous time for the publisher to join its Big Six colleagues by providing access to ebooks through our nation’s libraries. We hope that Simon & Schuster will extend its pilot to libraries beyond New York City in the near future. Books and knowledge—in all their forms—are essential. The ALA and our members welcome new and expanded digital access for all.”
