Public library mobile kiosk

DUDE. This is the best.

Book of words

Mobile library kiosk
During my travels, I saw this mobile library kiosk at a train station and thought that this is a such a brilliant public library initiative. Owned by the Taipei Public Library, this automated machine is modeled very similarly to how regular vending machine works, allowing users to borrow and return books 24/7. The only thing you need is a library card and you will be allowed to check out any of the hundreds of book titles displayed for free.

I love that it is that is so conveniently located, giving travelers access to reading materials right before you embark on a long train journey to keep their minds occupied and entertained. Rather than expecting people to walk into libraries, this is great way of reaching out to people and to keep physical copies of books relevant in our increasingly paperless society.

Any thoughts about this book-lending machine?
