Recent rains have not delayed plans for Dothan’s two new libraries.
Library Director Bettye Forbus says they are still anticipating a grand opening in January for the Downtown and Westgate libraries.
One of the biggest changes readers will notice is the iPad vending machines which work a lot like soda machines. Patrons can swipe their library card and get an iPad that can be used inside the building.
“When your time of close to two-hours is close to being out, you will get a little pop-up message that says, ‘your time is about gone, wrap it up’,” explained Forbus. “It wipes out your search history and recharges the battery so it is ready for the next person.”
If you are a member of the Dothan Library, soon you will be getting a new library card. It will have a new look and new capabilities.
