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.
