Esbjerg Bibliotekerne have recently started using their Friendly Franks in seven different places within the municipality.
They are situated in so-called library spots where the citizens normally show up for other reasons. Now, the citizens are able to pick up their ordered materials, return them and search for materials from the library’s complete inventory. The library can also create inspirational lists shown on the screen in order to let the user’s order materials directly from the place they’re in.
Friendly Frank can work as an alternative to the Book bus. It can also be expanded with various functions such as an event calendar or a newsletter.
