Editor’s Pick

Best New Idea

Helium

Think of this local startup as Uber for library books. You use Helium’s website to choose which books you want, and the service checks them out from a network of local libraries, delivers them to you and even picks them up when you’re done reading – free of charge, for now at least. Founder Ian Buchanan is aiming for a launch early this month.
