SAT’s 8.2 million travelers now have access to three Digital Library kiosks, the first of their kind in an airport, thanks to the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library. Located in both terminals, the kiosks function as rapid recharge stations and serve as a gateway to SAPL’s extensive Digital Library.
The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) has partnered with Overdrive, the leading full-service digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, magazines and video worldwide, to produce the Digital Library kiosks.
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 has debuted 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.
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.
