Boston has launched a new pilot program that transforms bus stops into digital libraries. Commuters at 20 bus stops can access free digital content such as audiobooks, eBooks, e-newspapers, and e-magazines by scanning a QR code. The program, which will run until the end of August, aims to provide convenient access to reading materials without requiring library cards or app downloads. The selection includes items in English and Spanish, with a focus on easily digestible content for on-the-go reading. Patrons can check out up to five titles at a time for two-week periods, and additional offerings will be added over the summer. The initiative aims to enhance public transportation experiences while connecting residents with the resources of the Boston Public Library.
