Self-checkout machine in Brooklyn library
Brooklyn Public Library's Homecrest branch will now have self-checkout services for customers.
The new service is in part of a $2 million Community Capital Assistant Program grant for Brooklyn Public Library's self-check machines.
The technology allows customers to borrow and return materials from the library by themselves and allows the staff to spend more time on other tasks around the library.
The new machines are already installed across the borough in branches such as, Williamsburg, Kings Bay, Highlawn, Mapleton, and Bay Ridge.
The New York Public library, which is separate of Brooklyn Public Library has this same service in many of their libraries across the city.
