Replacing libraries with unlimited access to ebooks come with many advantages; E-books are easily accessible and low budget. E-book access is completely at our fingertips, we could search, choose, buy, and read whenever and wherever we want.
Libraries should be replaced with unlimited access to e-books because to protect and save nature and the environment.
