Bride of the Digital Bookmobile!

It's been almost a year since we saw the Digital Bookmobile. And, IT'S BACK! The Digital Bookmobile is making a return visit, on its triumpant National Tour!

You can visit the Digital Bookmobile in Las Vegas from 10 AM to 4 PM:
Thursday, February 25th at the West Charleston Library
Friday, February 26th at the Enterprise Library
Saturday, February 27th at the Summerlin Library

Last year, we were terrifically excited about all the downloadable eAudio books that we could finally put on our iPods, not just our MP3 players.

This year, we have the advent of the eReader! Sony Readers and Nooks are tremendously popular, and you can download eBooks ***FREE!!!*** from your library! No need to depend on purchasing from the company's eBookstore.(Sorry, Amazon's Kindle is still off limits to us. We're hoping the Kindle will become more accepting of Library eBooks soon!)

The Digital Bookmobile is not your grandfather's bookmobile. It's totally high-tech and fun. The best part is it's Hands-on! Check out the Bookmobile Experience to see the great stuff you can do!

Do you have a new eReader? Or MP3 player or media player, and you're not quite sure how to get the book or movie from the library's website to your device? Now is the time to dive right in! The Experts from Overdrive will be there to smooth your path and transform you into an eMedia Guru! Impress your friends with your technical prowess! Don't worry about "messing up", because we'll be there to make it easy, and make you look like the tech brainiac.

Oh, and we'll be giving away library goodies too! You're probably thinking pencils, bookmarks, and the normal Library Swag. But how does a MP3/video player sound? We're having a drawing for an MP3/Video player each day! Just take a tour of the Digital Bookmobile to get your ticket! We'll be drawing the winner at 4PM. You don't need to be there, but if you win, you need to get back to the library within 48 hours to pick up your prize. (There's only one entry per person, so bring your friends and family to maximize your chance to win!)

Stop by the Digital Bookmobile this weekend!
