The kiosk is the first of its kind in the state. The idea for it came from the Onslow County Library. The kiosk allows passengers to scan through hundreds of books and then download them right to their phone, tablet or laptop for free.
“We want Albert J. Ellis Airport to stand out from other airports, but also, we want the library to extend its reach to the traveling public to visitors,” airport director Chris White said.
The kiosk costs about $15K. It was funded through a grant and donations to the Onslow County Library.
