Tourists to Lambton County will be able to find information about local events and attractions by going to the library.

Lambton County is working with Tourism Sarnia-Lambton to set up interactive touchscreen kiosks promoting programs, exhibitions, and events in libraries and cultural sites across Lambton. TSL received a Tourism Relief Fund grant for the work.

The kiosks are preloaded with Tourism Sarnia-Lambton’s Tour Ontario’s Blue Coast app. Using the kiosk, patrons will be able to find information about events, beaches, dining, arts, outdoor adventures, safe travels or gain some trip inspiration.

There is also a poster rack and brochure holder featuring information about the Lambton County Library, Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery, the Oil Museum of Canada, the Lambton Heritage Museum, Lambton County Archives and Tourism Sarnia-Lambton.

While the kiosks will likely be used by tourists, Andrew Meyer, general manager of Lambton’s cultural services, says Lambton residents can also use it. “We can sometimes overlook the great experiences available in our own backyards,
and visitors to one cultural site can be encouraged to visit other sites throughout the county,” he says.
