Digital Bookmobile Is Coming to Topeka

On June 17 and 18 the Digital Bookmobile tour comes to Topeka, sponsored by OverDrive, one of our ebook vendors. The Digital Bookmobile is a 74-foot vehicle packed full of PCs, high-definition monitors, ereaders and sound systems and catalogs of ebooks, audiobooks and video.

A look inside the Digital Bookmobile.

Hop aboard this high-tech bookmobile for interactive demonstrations from 10am to 4pm.

On June 17, the parking lot will turn into a mini touch-a-truck event with the Topeka Metro bus here too from 9:30am-12pm. Bring the kids to explore both of these vehicles.

You can watch some high-def interactive videos, pick up some how-to guides to downloading ebooks and a bus schedule (kids ride free this summer). Library cardholders can check out the digital titles anytime, anywhere at tscpl.org/ebooks. New books are added weekly.

You can take some gadgets for a test drive too! Try a Kindle Fire HD, iPad Mini, Android Galaxy Tablet, NOOK HD, Sony Reader, Kindle Paperwhite and Windows Phone 8, among other portable devices.

Let’s all hope for nice weather, and we’ll see you at the library June 17 and 18.LargeTruck_Discover
