The Breaking Bad Model: Emerging Publisher Opportunities in Public Library Distribution
Attend this exclusive and invite only PW Executive Roundtable session where publishers, librarians and vendors discuss what, if anything is broken in today's library patron user experience. In this sponsored-content event, we'll work to make sense of the new market opportunities that are emerging in the library space for book publishers of all shapes and sizes.

• Libraries enjoy a 94% approval rating in the United States (Pew Internet Study, 2013).
• A 2012 study from, however, found that only 6% of library cardholders in the study have ever even tried to check out an e-book.

We'll explore what this means, and the implications for publishers and librarians.
