SAPL launches Digital Library interactive kiosks for eBook checkout and rapid recharging at the SA International Airport
San Antonio’s 8.2 million travelers now have access to two Digital Library kiosks, the first of their kind, thanks to the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library.
The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) has partnered with Overdrive, the leading full-service digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, music and video worldwide, to produce the two Digital Library kiosks. The kiosks, which also function as rapid recharge stations, will serve as a gateway to SAPL’s extensive Digital Library.
“We are excited to bring such an innovative new service to the San Antonio International Airport,” said Ramiro Salazar, Director of the San Antonio Public Library. “By partnering with the Airport and Friends of the San Antonio Public Library, SAPL is both raising the public’s awareness of our digital library and facilitating access to it.”
SAPL Library cardholders visiting the Digital Library kiosks will be able to quickly access the Library’s entire digital collection via the 55-inch interactive screens. Additionally, the Library will be debuting the first-ever temporary Library card feature, available from OverDrive, for airport visitors from out-of-town or for those who do not yet have a SAPL library card.
Located in both terminals, the kiosks will also act as rapid recharging stations for mobile devices. This partnership reflects the airport’s extraordinary focus on customer service and convenience for its passengers. Fast and easy to use, the Digital Library kiosks are just another innovative way the San Antonio Public Library is accomplishing their mission of changing lives through the power of information, imagination and ideas.
This project is graciously funded in partnership with the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library. For more information on this project, call 210.207.2500.
