Books sold at Fla. library vending machine

January 31, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A library in Polk County in Florida has come up with a "novel" way to get your hands on a good book.

They've installed vending machines that dispense books and DVDs - not chips and chocolate bars.

The vending machines are monitored by a computer at the library, so workers know when to restock them.

They were installed for convenience and all that's needed is a valid library card.
