The Macmillan-public library dispute isn’t ending anytime soon.

The American Library Association had been prepared to deliver more than 160,000 petition signatures opposing the publisher’s library-license embargo yesterday.

Before the drop-off, though, Macmillan CEO John Sargent sent a letter to librarians across the country apologizing for not reaching out earlier but confirming the company’s commitment to a single-ebook license for all new releases in their first eight weeks out.

Here's a PDF of Sargent’s letter and the ALA’s online response.
