The Campbell County, Kentucky, Public Library System cut the ribbon recently on their newest, and third, SmartAxess Electronic Library Locker System. Called the Westside Express, the free-standing kiosk “will allow even more residents of Campbell County to access the library’s large collection of materials,” says Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery. He adds, “We are so fortunate to have a location for residents on the west side of Newport to pick up books, movies, magazines, and more.” The SmartAxess unit is the third for the Campbell County Public Library.
The Westside Express is located at the Northern Kentucky Scholar House. From left, pictured are Tracy Smith, the library’s Board of Trustees president; Tom Jones, a donor; Wonda Winkler, Brighton Center president & CEO; and Steve Pendery, Campbell County judge executive.
