Hello, Representative Lifferth,

Thank you, again, for coming to the Capitol to meet with me on Monday. I appreciate your interest, knowledge of libraries, time, and support. 

This evening, finally, I've had time to search for information on publishers' sales of ebooks to libraries. Here's one of the best sources. It includes some information about pricing, too.

(Your wife will recognize the source--American Library Association [ALA].)

Here is one of the websites focusing on ebook pricing to libraries:

I look forward to seeing you once the session starts.

Best wishes,
