Fundamental idea behind book store and library is same, which is of providing books to customers. If you want to open a book store, you must understand that books are meant to be read. Good book stores should offer library service, either as an integral part of the site or as an optional service. While you can buy books at any time, most students and recent graduates find themselves interested in specific books that have limited availability and high prices. Some libraries donate used copies to individuals who request them, but others will make personal visits to library patrons or library cardholders in order to ensure that they have access to widely published books that might be difficult to find elsewhere. You can also get your books signed at bookstores with the proceeds going to charity. A good book store is one with knowledgeable staff and well-organized collection.

E-library concept is pretty straight forward, in which you just need to provide a page labelled and used as bookshelf and readers can get their books on their smart phones or PCs.
