Bexar County's new BiblioTech to be named for UTSA President Ricardo Romo
(July 3, 2015) – The new branch of Bexar County's ground-breaking digital library system will be named in honor of UTSA President Ricardo Romo.
The grand opening for the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech will take place on Saturday, July 25 at the Gardens of San Juan Square, 2003 Zarzamora. Featured speakers at the ribbon-cutting will include Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff and Precinct 2 County Commissioner Paul Elizondo. President Romo and the Honorable Julián Castro will be featured guests.
The new Bibliotech is the second full branch of Bexar County's digital public library. The first BiblioTech opened in the fall of 2013 at 3505 Pleasanton Rd. It was the first bookless, all-digital public library in the United States, lending e-readers and digital content rather than physical media. Onsite patrons can access online databases and educational resources with the library's iMacs, iPads, Xbox 360s and Microsoft Surface touch-screen video tablets.
The Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech will offer the same technology, along with a group study room and a children's area. The Gardens of San Juan Square is operated by the San Antonio Housing Authority, which will become the first housing authority in the nation to have a digital library within one of its properties.
The Bexar County library system is modeled after UTSA's Applied Engineering and Technology (AET) Library, the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It opened in March 2010.
