New branch for a city library

One of the things that you see very often in airport waiting rooms is people reading.  Well, the Free Library of Philadelphia recently took advantage of that situation  by opening a branch of their library at the Philadelphia International Airport.  In a library themed lounge, passengers can access free Wi-Fi to the library’s digital catalog.  “Patrons” can download books or author podcasts from the more than 30,000 titles in the library’s collection.

Librarians are on hand several times a week to answer questions and also accept applications for library cards, which are free to any Pennsylvania resident, $50 a year to all others.  What a good idea!
