Library in a Box

Lending_Library_2011_Wrapped[2] Lending machines for books got some press a couple of years ago when Brodart had one at ALA.  Books in vending machines isn't a new idea and apparently they've been popular overseas for some time time, though more in a "vending" than "lending" way.

What's happened since then?
Library lending machines came up for a brief discussion at an SCLS Technology Committee meeting. Result of discussion: "interested libraries should find out more about them."

The Toronto library has investigated them.

Some libraries across the country have implemented them.
