Visitors at Aylesbury Library are given the opportunity to use Samsung Galaxy tablets when they drop by. The only requirements to use the gadgets for two hours for free are Buckinghamshire library card and PIN.
Called the “Hublets”, the devices are ready to browse the internet using the library’s WiFi. They are preloaded with some favourite apps, including Libby and RBdigital apps that can be used to access eBooks and eMagazines.
The device must be returned to their docking station after use. It will automatically log out the previous user and clear any information downloaded to the device, ensuring that it is charged and ready for the next customer.
Councillor Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health said: "I'm really proud of what we're achieving at Aylesbury Library and the new Hublets are another addition to what's a bright, modern and welcoming new library environment.
"We hope to offer Hublets at more of our libraries if they prove popular at Aylesbury.
"All of our libraries are fantastic community hubs fit for modern life. Alongside traditional book-borrowing we offer so much more - there are free family activities, a chance to browse up to date newspapers and magazines plus general information and advice and you can to do printing and scanning too. Why not check out what's on at your local library?"
