24/7 Library Kiosk To Open In San Diego County

The county of San Diego is scheduled to open Friday a library kiosk in Kearny Mesa that will dispense hundreds of books and movies to library card-holders.

The "24/7 Library To Go'' is the first of its kind on the West Coast and second in the U.S., according to county officials.

It will store more than 400 books and DVDs, much like a movie box at grocery stores, and be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The county said patrons can also gain access to the library's catalog and databases, reserve books for pickup at a county library branch or bookmobile, and pay late fees.
