Preston Library, of Darebin City Council, is the first library in Victoria to adopt chargebars to compliment its free WiFi service. Positioned near the computer centre and the reading lounge, visitors are free to grab a phone recharge without interruption to their activities at the community centre.
In South Australia, the City of Marion library (near Adelaide) is leading the charge. This popular community hub is due to receive their mobile charger station very soon to service the library, community centre and council chambers.
