Palm Beach County Library System Introduces Their First Book Vending Machine – Library to Go

On Tuesday, March 14 at 1:00 pm, the Palm Beach County Library System unveiled their latest resource available for community members to access Library materials – the Library to Go cabinet.

Similar to a vending machine, Palm Beach County Library System cardholders can now borrow new and popular books from this device.

Library Director Douglas Crane welcomed guests to the grand unveiling of the Palm Beach County Library System’s first-of-its-kind cabinet. “We’re very excited today to launch Library to Go. If it goes well at the Governmental Center, we expect to expand the service out to other locations.”

In attendance were Mayor Gregg K. Weiss, who ceremoniously checked out the first book, followed by members of the Board of County Commissioners including: Maria G. Marino, Michael A. Barnett, Marci Woodward and Mack Bernard. All were very pleased to see this expansion come to the Governmental Center.

Cory L. McCoy, president of Lyngose Systems U.S., the company that produced the Library to Go machine was also elated. “We wanted to keep it super simple and 100 percent mobile where you can put these machines anywhere to increase the patron experience for the Palm Beach County Library System.”

Members are encouraged to visit the machine, located at the Robert Weisman Governmental Center Lobby at 301 North Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach 33401 during regular business hours.
