Outpost 27 Visitor’s Center
Back porch site for the Vending Library. Before installation Note the data jack and electrical outlet!
Staff Learning to Load Stock in machines
The porch has two solid walls and 2 screened half walls.
Scanning the item into the machine
The shelves drop down for access. You can reorder a row or the whole machine.
In this machine, there are 20 dvd’s in a row and four rows in a tray. We have 3 trays for dvd’s. Because the books are such different sizes, PCLC machines are configured to have 9, 11, or 21 books per row. Each machine may be configured according to your needs and you may reconfigure the shelves if you want to change things around later.
The trays drop down for ease of access
This is the keypad that your use to access the rows
