Last week the San Antonio International Airpo  unveiled two Digital Library kiosks that will allow travelers to check out digital media to take on trips.The kiosks were funded by the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library at a cost of $26,000.

The kiosks will allow library patrons to browse the library’s digital media content which can then be checked out and downloaded onto a mobile device for three weeks before they expire.In addition to allowing travelers to check out online materials, the kiosks will serve as a rapid recharging station for mobile devices.

The San Antonio Public Library is also allowing out-of-town travelers to get a temporary library card that they can use to borrow ebooks and other items.
