E-books taking over Mid-South school libraries

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Computers, WiFi, and online textbooks are taking over Mid-South classrooms.

Arlington Schools Superintendent Tammy Mason said e-books are replacing the traditional library books in school libraries across her district.

"We're probably now a little over half coming in with e-books now. When my librarian makes the orders that I approve at the middle and high school  the orders are for e-books," Mason said.

E-books are easy to read for students in Arlington; each student in grades 5-12 has an Apple computer that they received on registration day.
