A school library in the USA has come up with a unique scheme to deliver library books via drone.

Kelly Passek, a school librarian in Virginia, came up with a creative way to ensure that kids in her community still have books to keep them occupied.

Now, students in Montgomery County can choose from the library’s more than 150,000 titles, and have their books delivered right to their front yard. 

This is the first school system in the world to deliver library books to their students.

The system is simple. Students request to take out library books using an online form. Passek fulfills the requests, packs the books up in special delivery boxes, then drops them off at Wing, which handles the drone deliveries.

The service started last week on a limited trial basis.
