Looking for a 2 a.m. library fix? Milwaukee to debut 24-hour vending

“It’s much bigger than the Redbox at the grocery store, and more educational. Milwaukee is getting an Express Vending Library, a 24-hour machine that will serve the residents of Westlawn and surrounding neighborhoods, perhaps as soon as next month. The unit, to be anchored near the corner of N. 64th St. and W. Silver Spring Drive, will be one of a handful of vending libraries in the country. In addition to Milwaukee, units are scheduled to go up in Oklahoma City, San Diego and Fresno, Calif. While the units are relatively new to the United States, there are thousands of them scattered throughout China, Milwaukee library officials say.” (via Journal Sentinel)
