*What is Library-a-Go-Go?
Library-a-Go-Go is an automated book dispensing machine. It's a self-contained collection of books that allows Contra Costa County Library card holders to borrow library books and return them when finished.

A touch screen is used to select from approximately 400 books that are delivered through an opening in the front of the unit. Books are returned through the same slot.
