My library just went though renovations and this was an added feature: Book Vending Machines!
Open 24 hours a day (For anyone that might have a hankering for a mystery book at three in the morning like we all do) this vending machine carries random books (and sometimes DVDs) for all ages. It doesn’t cost any money, it just requires that you have a public library card for this county. You simply walk up, scan your card, put in your pin, and select a book like you would a drink of a snack. It drops down and there you go, you’ve checked out a book! You simply return it in the book drop or in the library when you’re finished.
