 “There are actually several of them throughout Florida, but none in the Florida Panhandle.”

One machine is planned for installation next month in the Baker community near Baker Heritage Museum, Stever said.

In addition, the cooperative offers virtual offerings.

Tablets — like iPads or Nooks —laptops or smart phones can access library books and read them from anywhere if they have a library card. 

The cooperative’s website, readokaloosa.org, features a digital library. Library members can read as many as five online book titles every two weeks.

“We want to reach to those in the community who may not have easy access to a public library,” Stever said.
