If you search “library kiosk” and “post office” you sure don’t come up with much #lunchtimegooglediversion
Filed under buildings, Uncategorized
I saw two presentations about information kiosks at the Reference Renaissance conference last week. Pretty interesting stuff; seems like a great, low-cost way to expand service!
Do you think post offices would be a good service point?
I agree. It seems TRL has been on the cutting edge in terms of kiosk development, they’re an entire second tier of branch for us. I saw and application for a state of Washington library grant from Pierce County libraries seeking funds to develop a kiosk. I wondered why they just didn’t copy and paste TRL’s.
Anyway, yes, post offices seem like a logical service point. They’re open during the day and usually have a live body around. They serve a similar purpose (for people picking up mail) and are practically the only public building in a lot of places. I can’t think of a small community that doesn’t have one.
Plus, they don’t have the interaction problems that public schools do.
