Stranded Pilot Whale Now At SeaWorld

DANIA BEACH (CBSMiami) – Waiting for your luggage at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport can now enrich your brain.

The Broward County Commission announced Friday that travelers can now access and download more than 15,000 free e-books on their smart phone or e-reader.

The program is a partnership between the commission, the airport and Broward County libraries.

Travelers can access the electronic library by scanning a Quick Response (QR) code displayed on screens throughout baggage claim. A library card is not required, but a QR app is. Many are available in your service provider’s app store and many can be downloaded for free.

Officials say there are many genres of books to choose from and they never expire.
