Saint Paul, MN

The Forest Lake branch of the library is just 5 miles north of the Hugo city hall. A car that gets 25 mpg could make 30,000 round trips to the library with gas at $2.50/gallon. If 5 people use the kiosk every day (unlikely) it would take 16.5 years to make up the cost of the kiosk ($30,000) just in gas money terms (not to mention kiosk maintenance and book delivery costs). My bet is that in 16.5 years we will be on our 4th kiosk.
