Pew Research: Innovative Library Services "In the Wild" (Jacksonville Public Library, JPL Express Oceanway)

Pew Research: Library services "in the wild"

From LEID Products

Cheers: Lockers a neat idea for Jacksonville-area libraries.  (Florida Times-Union, 9.28.2012)

Excerpt:  Oceanway does not have its own library, so with some creativity a system of electronic lockers was installed at the Oceanway Community Center.

The lockers provide a secure pick-up location for books, DVDs, CDs and other library materials checked out by library customers. The lockers are accessible only by the customer that ordered the materials. The system is the first of its kind in the Southeast.

JPL Express Oceanway opened last summer and was so popular that Holt stepped in to expand the service, using district funds to add more lockers.
