Today, Ralph Jennings from the IDG News Service reports on the opening of a library at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
From the Article:
The e-library at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport allows passengers to consult [about 400] Chinese and English-language books, and around 2,000 books on paper, in a special waiting area in the larger of the airport’s two terminals. The terminal commonly handles stopovers between North America and Southeast Asia.
The e-books are stored on around 30 devices, a mix of iPads and e-readers with e-ink screens. The e-books are stored in the ePub and Zinio formats. The airport is loaning out the devices on a first come first served basis. Passengers can’t download the books to their own e-reader, limiting the usefulness of the service.
