MacMillan’s eBook embargo on public libraries

— 1 minute read

My fellow Americans, this is distressing and it’s happening right now. This week I received an email from the American Library Association.

Beginning November 1, 2019, Macmillan Publishers will allow libraries to purchase only one copy of each new eBook title for the first eight weeks after a book’s release.

The ALA explains why this matters at #eBooksForAll.

Please read, and if possible, alert your friends and neighbors. Thank you!
