Well that was fast!
After a hiatus of less than two months, our awareness- spreading,
74-foot, 18-wheel tractor-trailer is dusted off, prettied up, outfitted
with some new technology and headed to the left coast!
The Digital Bookmobile
is back on the prowl and this time we’re following the sun, giving
patrons in warmer climates a chance to experience eBooks in an entirely
new and exciting way. So far, there are more than 20 stops over the next
several weeks in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada, with many more to come!
The Digital Bookmobile provides visitors the opportunity to interact
with several touch-screen workstations, view video tutorials on the
local library’s OverDrive service, as well as experiment in our recently
upgraded Gadget Gallery,
which now houses a Samsung Galaxy Tab™, Kindle Fire, Sony Reader
Wi-Fi®, SanDisk Sansa®, Creative Zen®, Barnes & Noble Nook™, iPod
touch®, plus Blackberry® and Windows Phone smartphones.
This hybrid of entertainment and education has helped OverDrive
partner libraries reach out to their communities and introduce the eBook
service they provide to their patrons and we are thrilled to be a part
of the excitement it creates around the library!
Look out for the Digital Bookmobile coming to Windmill Library Friday March 30th and Saturday March 31st. Take the tour between 9:30am and 4pm and get entered into a drawing for a brand new Sony WiFi PRS-T1 eReader!
