What a great idea this vending machine at Century Park LRT Station is. EPL is quite frankly very smart at putting this machine there. There are kids & students of all ages who are on the go, 24/7 around the clock who do not have the time II physically enter a library branch & enjoy the library experience. This vending machine lets them extend that experience out II their own above &/or alternate study locale.
There are of course students with learning disability's/auditory dysfunctions who are afraid II enter a library branch &/or be around II many people. This vending machine will let them take out & return materials at their own leisurely pace. Thus of course gradually socializing them & making them want II try out actually library branch locations when they have some free time. This of course can only be great news IV the library & for the citizens of Edmonton proper overall, as we'll have a more educated & more learned population across all city sector grids. This will of then result in way more community-minded & socially aware members of the citizenry!
