BEDFORD (KRLD’S YOUR HOMETOWN) — The Bedford Public Library has joined more than two dozen others in a growing battle with e-book publishers.

The Bedford Public Library has joined a consortium of 25 libraries who are now sharing e-books to reduce costs.

Chuck Schechner talked to Bedford Library Manager Maria Redburn about the growing problem.
