Any books we have now should be scanned electronicly for viewing and the originals stored safely and any new books or newspapers should only be distributed digitally.

I disagree completely. For one, newspapers and magazines are preferred by many people over the use of the internet.
Everyday paper, such as the stuff you put in your computer print and what magazines are printed on, is made from wood fibres (pulp), but some speciality and top-quality art papers are made from fabric fibres (rag), or with a mixture of fabric and wood fibres.
