Libraries at airports?!

800px-Washington_Dulles_International_Airport_at_DuskLibrary branches can be found in many places and now they’re showing up in Airports!? American Libraries Magazine recently reported that airports around the country are seeing more and more libraries among the baggage returns and security checks.

In some cases, like in Boise, digital access is only for Boise residents. In others, like in San Antonio, nonresidents are able to get temporary access to the library’s digital offerings. Regardless of the access, it seems to be a success. “The popularity of the download stations has prompted both libraries to consider establishing more throughout the airports and in other parts of the city.”
