Delivering Books by Drone
First it was supplies from a pharmacy; now Google’s Wing Aviation will begin delivering library books to young people in the Christiansburg area using its delivery drones. The idea came about from drone delivery customer Kelly Passek, who happens to be a middle-school librarian for Montgomery County Public Schools. Due to her positive experience with the delivery service, she approached the team at Wing Aviation and asked if it would be interested in delivering books for the summer reading program. The first set of books is scheduled for delivery next week.
Ms. Passek said, “I think kids are going to be just thrilled to learn that they are going to be the first in the world to receive a library book by drone.”
