How Can Your Library Compete with Delivery Drones?
It was bound to happen eventually; Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos surprised the country (except for sci-fi geeks like us) with his announcement of Amazon Prime Air, a 30-minute Delivery Drone service in a few years. You may be wondering how Your Library can compete with this type of scary technology.
Well, you’re in safe hands with our Mobile App; with your eBook subscriptions, your patrons have free and instant eBook access right from their smartphone or tablet. Do your patrons know about your eBook services? If they don’t, be sure to promote any digital features you offer, especially ones included in Your Library Mobile App. Visit our blog post to read more about how your library can compete with Delivery Drones.
