E-books are seeing popularity skyrocket and many local libraries are taking notice.
The Marathon County Library system has seen circulation jump to nearly 40,000 E-books being checked out a year. That is up from 7,000 just three years ago.
They say that their goal is to make people of all ages feel comfortable with the E-book technology in hopes they will begin using them.
The library director says that E-books and other electronic resources helps patrons use the library services 24 hours a day.
"The libraries are evolving into a 24/7 operation. Through our own website you have access to just around 50 different electronic database resources one could use from home." said Library Director Ralph Illick
Most E-books available to library patrons have time limits for how long they can be checked out.
They usually delete themselves automatically once the time limit is reached.
