Digital Bookmobile Visits Library

The East Baton Rouge Parish Library will host the Digital Bookmobile, an immersive download experience inside a 74-foot, high-tech tractor-trailer, on Wednesday, December 3, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Boulevard.

Readers of all ages are invited to engage digital downloading through interactive demonstrations and experience the Library’s audiobook, eBook, music, and video download service at this free event. There will be giveaways throughout the day – including mp3 players!

The Digital Bookmobile is housed inside an 18-wheel tractor-trailer. This 74-foot community outreach vehicle is a high-tech update of the traditional bookmobile that has served communities for decades. The vehicle is equipped with broadband Internet-connected PCs, high definition monitors, premium sound systems, and a variety of portable media players, all of which help visitors explore the Library’s download service. Interactive learning stations give visitors an opportunity to search the digital media collection, use supported mobile devices, and download and enjoy eBooks, audiobooks, music, and video from the Library.
