Last Tuesday, the San Antonio Public Library, in partnership with our Aviation Department, unveiled new digital library kiosks at the San Antonio International Airport. The two Digital Library kiosks – one in each terminal – are the first of their kind in an airport. These kiosks Allow the Library’s content to be accessed on personal mobile devices.
The Library has partnered with Overdrive, the worldwide leader in full-service digital media distribution, to produce the kiosks. San Antonio Public Library cardholders visiting a Digital Library kiosk can quickly access the Library’s entire digital collection via a 55-inch interactive screen.
Additionally, the Library has debuted the first-ever temporary Library card feature, available from OverDrive, for out-of-town visitors or for residents who do not yet have a San Antonio Public Library card. As an added feature for travelers, the kiosks provide rapid recharging for a wide range of mobile devices.
The digital library kiosks are graciously funded in partnership with the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library, and we thank them for their continued support. This project exemplifies the City’s Core Values of Teamwork and Innovation.
