Texas: BiblioTech All-Digital Public Library Partners With Area Hospital

BiblioTech is located in Bexar County, Texas (San Antonio area).

From KTSA:

“Now we’re going into University Hospital with a kiosk in their main lobby, we hope to have it up in November, that’ll give them access to those 40,000 books,” Judge Nelson Wolff told KTSA News.

Wolff said, just about a month ago, Bibliotech kiosks were placed at bus stations.

Under the agreement approved Tuesday by Commissioners Court, the hospital system will provide facilities and volunteer staff for BiblioTech kiosks, the podium-size terminals where digital collections can be searched for download to personal mobile devices.


“One of the greatest points of elegance about BiblioTech is that we can make it fit anywhere,” said BiblioTech administrator Laura Cole. “We can make it fit any model,” she said, including a hospital system.
