Microsoft Surface in a public library

Microsoft Surface at Darien Library - found via John Blyberg's blog

The best part? They're putting it in the kids section!

From John's blog post:
We decided to put it in the Children’s Room for several very basic reasons. Kids will just “get it” immediately without any explanation. Kids are tactile creatures who are very comfortable with hands-on activity. If we can give them a piece of really cool technology they’ve never seen before and invite them to literally put their hands on it, I have no doubt they will not only be impressed, but empowered as well. They’re not going to ask silly questions like, “why would you put one of these in a library”, because they intuitively know why.
