Modular self-service library lending devices for a future-focused public service
Recently installed at multiple sites across East Sussex, the Discovery Station was chosen through a competitive tender process to fulfill this local authority’s need to deliver a future-facing libraries service.
Equipped to meet changing user needs, and delivered with training aimed at empowering library staff to manage the ongoing running and basic maintenance of the system, the Discovery Station kiosks are designed to increase patron use through a simple and intuitive user interface, for issue and return of items and account management.
The Discovery Station by GWD is a custom-built solution with circular economy design principles, made to last longer than a typical lending kiosk contract, upgradable and updateable as services grow and change, without the need for costly and environmentally wasteful replacement at contract end.
Here’s what Steve Henson, Principal Library Officer at East Sussex County Council Libraries, had to say about our work:
