When we went to check out the books they had a self-service check out that Ross wanted to try. It looked like the self check out at a grocery store. There was a bar code reader, a space that said read area, and a huge touch screen. All fun stuff for my engineer husband. We scanned our library card with the bar code reader, then the touch screen asked for how many books we had. We had 8 and it only went up to 5. I was confused (as usual). Ross took three books off of the stack and then pressed 5. The screen showed which books were left and that we had checked them out. We put the last 3 books on the counter and then it checked those out. Just like that! We didn't scan each book individually. I guess the books all have RFID tags, so it just read them and checked them out to us! It was super cool!
