Libraries offer weird things to draw new borrowers

“This spring, your next packet of garden seeds may come not from a hardware store or nursery, but from your local public library.Fighting to stay relevant in the digital age, public libraries have taken to lending all manner of weird and wonderful items: hand tools, baking pans, fishing poles, telescopes and knitting needles, among others. Dont like the memoir offerings at your local branch? Bring a USB thumb drive, plug it in at one of several massive Espresso Book Machines and print a hard-cover copy of your own memoir — or any other obscure title the library doesnt keep on hand.”
