The King County Library System is hosting e-book download kiosks at the Seattle Tacoma International Airport through the end of December, according to Voice of the Valley, a newspaper in Maple Valley, Washington. Two OverDrive Media Stations are available near Concourses A and D.
Passengers who already have a KCLS library card will be able to check out downloadable e-books and audiobooks just like they can in the library. Passengers without a KCLS library card will be able to check out two titles for free in the airport. Each title will expire and disappear from all devices seven days after downloading, so there’s no need to return them.
Airport e-book kiosks enable travelers to enjoy reading on their journeys. KCLS, for its part, wants to reach this diverse user group in the community—beyond library buildings—and make it easy to use downloadable books.
