drive-throughs are not just for drivers
to pick up fast food or coffee a library in in ton metropolitan city has
introduced a book drive-thru system to encourage people to read more books our
own Ji Young has a story a driver stops by a kiosk in a parking lot when the
driver touches the library card to a reader and enters the password a
reserved book comes out me to her library in incheon has introduced a
24-hour book drive through system for the first time in South Korea allowing
people to borrow or return books without having to leave the comfort of their
vehicles after using this book drive through service I thought it was really
convenient I think I’ll use this often this 24-hour automated system features
about 400 new books and can be reserved online in advance for a pickup users can
also return books at this drive through that they have checked out at any of the
six other libraries connected to Incheon me to her library this service seeks to
be more convenient for people and reduce the costs of running library buildings
it costs millions of dollars to build a public library so there’s a limit to
building them through this book drive through system we hope more citizens can
enjoy reading books this system is currently tested ahead of its official
launch about two weeks from now on ji-yong arirang news
