The Underground Library Is The Best Idea You’ll Hear Today

ATTENTION NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY RIDERS.

1. The Problem: A Massive Decline in Public Library Usage

2. The Proposal: ELECTRONIC UNDERGROUND LIBRARY!!!

To combat the decline, a trio of Miami Ad School students - Max Pilwat, Keri Tan and Ferdi Rodriguez - proposed a plan that would allow people to access ebooks on the subway.

3. Step 1: Find this poster on your local train.

4. Step 2: Swipe to access the catalogue.

Using near field communications (NFC) technology, commuters would have access to a list of current best sellers.

5. Step 3: Pick your poison.

And enjoy the first incredibly addictive ten pages.

6. Step 4: Find the book at local New York Public Library to keep reading for free.

When once again above ground, users would get a reminder with nearby library locations.

7. It’s just a student project for now, but hopefully it won’t stay that way.

8. Basically: NYPL MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
