Brooklyn’s libraries, ever on the cusp technological innovation, will soon be offering is patrons state-of-the art self-checkout stations, NY1 reports.

The stations–a new digital means of checking out one’s books, and not checking out one’s self–will be rolled out in a staggered schedule, as branches must close for about a month during the installation. The rollout should be complete by Fall of 2013, which would “help free up staff to do other tasks.”

Good luck finding copies of Eat Pray Love now that you don’t have to look someone in the eye before you walk out with your selections anymore.
