The LibraryBox is a wireless network used to provide free eBooksand other content to the public. There is no login required and it is completely free. It utilizes open source code from NYU professor David Darts with modifications made by the Lake Forest Library.
Uses: Currently, the main use of the LibraryBox is to provide quality public domain and creative commons licensed materials to the public. We plan to expand this to be a place for you to share your art, writing, and music.
