Learn about eBooks at the Digital Bookmobile; Win a Kindle or a Nook

Phillip Kwik - Posted on

Here is your chance to learn all about eBooks and win an Amazon Kindle or a Barnes & Noble Nook.

On Tuesday, June 19, the OverDrive Digital Bookmobile – a 74 foot-long, 18-wheel tractor-trailer painted bright blue – will be in the Troy Library’s north parking lot from 12 noon until 6 pm.

But unlike bookmobiles of yesterday that would drive around delivering print books to your neighborhood, the Digital Bookmobile is outfitted with computers, eReaders, mp3 players and other portable electronic devices. The Bookmobile will showcase the Library’s collection of free eBooks and audiobooks, and show you how easy it is to download to your eReader, smartphone, or tablet with a Troy Public Library card.

And, if you are in the market to buy an eReader, you will be able to sample different types to see which best suit your needs.

Plus, when you visit the Digital Bookmobile, you can enter to win either an Amazon Kindle Touch or a NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight, provided by the award-winning Friends of the Troy Public Library.

Drop by the Library on June 19, to visit the 21st century version of an old library favorite – and learn about the fast-growing world of eBooks.

(P.S. If you cannot make the Digital Bookmobile and have eBook questions, drop by the Library's Technology Center during open LIbrary hours and a staff member will be able to assist you with all your issues.)
