It may look like a vending machine the Evanston Public Library is installing at the Robert Crown Center, but actually it’s a book lending machine.
And it will begin coughing up books and DVDs next week, according to Library Director Karen Danczak Lyons.
All you’ll need is an Evanston library card to process a transaction. Books can be checked out for two weeks and DVDs for one week on a nonrenewable basis.
“This is another step in our process as we encourage our families to expect library services at the Robert Crown location,” says Lyons. “We look forward to welcoming our families to Evanston’s Robert Crown Branch Library in a few years."
The EPL book lending machine will be available any time Robert Crown is open. Materials can be returned at the book drop at Robert Crown or at any of the library’s locations.
