While 24,000 is an impressive number for a collection directed towards 
blind people, and even more so given the short time BookShare has been in 
most small towns have collections far larger.
Our city of 35,000, as an example, has upwards of 200,000 books (some 
duplicates, of course) in its collection not counting audio books, or 
So while BookShare has taken great strides in making reading material 
available, it is still a drop in the bucket as compared to what is 
available in a typical public library.
