What Happened to Our County Law Library?
Neither Snyder County (Penn.) Commissioner Joe Kantz nor fellow Commissioner Malcolm Derk know who decided to toss the Synder County's law library collection into a dumpster last October but they're upset with the cost of going digital. How much? $10,000 per year for the County's online only law library. Sounds cheap but this is one of those one-room county law libraries housed in a local courthouse so it may not be as inexpensive as it sounds. This incident also poses an interesting question: should county law libraries that are required to be open to the public be digital-only? [JH]
