City without a Bookstore

A few months ago there were reports about a private school in Massachusetts that decided to get rid of all the books in its library. Today, The New York Times is reporting that Laredo, Texas, will lose its only bookstore when B. Dalton closes its doors. Fortunately, the Laredo Public Library is there to help fill the gap (unless the library decides to get rid of its books, too).
