Well, just in libraries that you can drive your car into. Right?

Soon to lend electric cars, too.

Hi, all. I came across the item below today

http://www.azcentral.com/community/surprise/articles/2011/12/12/20111212charging-stations-electric-cars-coming-peoria.html#ixzz1jBhut3jq

and noticed this rather interesting part of the article, " Any location where you will potentially spend an hour or two is a good place for a charger, and the library is a place where users return week after week, not once every few months."

I just wondered if any libraries in Oregon are doing this. Librarians pretty enterprising when it comes to community outreach and public services.
