Boston brings digital libraries to bus stops

  • Date: 05/15/2023

A new Boston Public Library (BPL) pilot programme means riders at 20 bus stops in the city can access free digital content this spring and summer.

Through the “Browse, Borrow, Board” scheme, which is also in partnership with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), riders can scan a QR code to access audiobooks, e-books, and digital newspapers and magazines.

No library card or special app is required to use the service as the city said its primary goal is to introduce riders to the library’s offerings and make resources accessible.
