The current pandemic may have closed schools and public libraries across the United States, but a librarian in Virginia found a creative way to keep kids reading. Her solution? Drones will deliver books of their choice directly to their door.
Kelly Passek, a middle school librarian in the Montgomery County School District, is an early adapter of drone delivery service for household goods in her town of Christianburg. It didn't take long for her to see how this technology could benefits kids in her district. "I think kids are going to be just thrilled to learn they are going to be the first in the world to receive a library book by drone," she said.
