More Wheels in the Library! (or Librarian Transport of the Future)


Sean Robinson sends this photo to TTW. Lynn, the new General Reference librarian at the recently-renovated Allen County Public Library tests out her new Segway at the construction site. Sean reports: “It is her personal Segway and she is traveling to work on it. Since we are bringing up the new library and moving material to the new location Lynn has been using the Segway to go back and forth from the old location which is just down the street to the new location. She said that it goes about 12 mph.” Sean talked tothe director about this and showed him the photo, offering “since we have so much square footage it might be cool to offer this to staff to get around!”

One thing that Lynn liked was she could reach the top shelf to get books.
