LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- New digital kiosks are popping up across downtown Louisville just in time for the Kentucky Derby. 

Each "City Post" kiosk is like a giant iPad that displays information about Louisville restaurants, hotels and attractions. 

Nine information hubs will be installed in various locations on Fourth Street and Jefferson Street. Others will be added throughout the city later this year.

Louisville Councilwoman Barbara Sexton-Smith says the kiosks will be a valuable source of information for visitors during Derby week. 

"I spend all of my time, block by block, answering questions to folks: 'Where can we go? Where can we get something great to eat? Where can we go see the arts? Where's the park? Where's the river? Where's the parking garage? Well, it's right here."

The kiosks will also serve as WiFi hotspots and will be equipped with security cameras attached to the top.
