Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) announced a partnership with the San Jose Public Library on a new free Pop-Up Library that will provide airport travelers with access to nearly 400 eBooks.
The SJC Pop-Up Library, powered by Axis360, is a small network device that creates instant access to some of the library’s digital collection through a Wi-Fi network. This service does not require a library card, data plan, or app to be installed. Anyone can access the titles by connecting to “SJPL Free eBooks” located near Gate 12 and Gate 24
“Many people love to read when traveling and bringing the e-Library to the Airport is a great way to help our customers do just that,” John Aitken, SJC director. “We appreciate this partnership with the San José Public Library, and we’re pleased to now offer this free, touchless, and convenient way to access to the world through reading as well as through travel.”
Passengers can download up to four eBooks using their smartphone, tablet, or laptop device and can enjoy them for three weeks. New titles will be added monthly based on the types of titles passengers are searching for.
