Urgent Action 

    Macmillan Publishing, Simon & Schuster, Penguin Group, Brilliance Audio, and Hachette Book Group, have all announced that they will not sell or license e-books to libraries. We think this is wrong, and we’re protesting, trying to get the policy changed. If you want to help, we urge you to contact the publishers and express your concerns. If this decision is permitted to stand, it raises troubling questions for the future of information freely available through our nation’s public libraries. After all, if they can refuse to sell e-books to public libraries, what's to stop them from deciding not to sell "ordinary" "printed" books to public libraries? Or newspapers? Or DVD's? Or music? Or magazines? Or databases? We hope you'll take a few moments to add your voice to a growing chorus of protest of this new policy.
