The Summit County Library received an LSTA Grant in 2018 to purchase a Remote Book Locker to place in the rural town of Henefer, Utah. Residents in Henefer can now collect and return their materials through the Locker instead of being required to travel 20 miles round-trip to the nearest Summit County Library Branch. This presentation will give an overview of the project, including how the partnership with Henefer was formed, details about the Locker, and lessons learned.
