Lebanon County Library System celebrated the 150,000th checkout in its e-library last week.  Unbeknownst to her, Susan Rodkey, a patron of the Lebanon Community Library, borrowed the 150,000th item.   Susan is already an avid user of the e-library and looks forward to reading books on her new tablet.  When asked about her win, Susan said, “I can’t believe I won, I’m never this lucky!” Lylab Technology Solutions furnished an Acer Iconia Tab 10 Tablet, perfect for borrowing even more ebooks, to Susan in honor of the occasion.
