This concept, its realization, its origin, its purpose and agendae seems potentially distrustworthy on so many levels. If it is intended to actually offer technological familiarization, training, and resources to an underserved community, it might be laudable, but "...'Browsing through this library will feel like browsing through an Apple store,' says Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff" raises some intuitive red flags; shilling this "Bibliotech" through a reference to browsing the latest commercial whizz-bangery of an Apple Store makes me wonder who or what might be profiting materially----especially with Texas' woeful record of using "education reform" as a means of of allowing corporations to raid the public coffers and pick the of the pockets the citizenry, touting panaceas and miracles (vis-a-vis "the Brazosport miracle", the shell game constructed with the connivance of Ron Paige that eventually led to NCLB and a wrongheaded politicization of "the Education Crisis" that is still damaging public education across the nation.
Whose formats and platforms are being used, and what products are being pushed, I wonder.
Who's behind the curtain?
