Digital bookmobile appears at national book festival.


The Digital Bookmobile, an 18-wheeler that features download services available from more than 9,000 libraries worldwide, appeared on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the 2009 National Book Festival last September. Visitors browsed download websites for libraries, sample ebooks, digital audiobooks, music, and video on interactive PC and Mac computer stations, learned how to download, and tested compatible devices including the iPod, Zune, and Sony Reader.

The Digital Bookmobile has traveled 18,000 miles and hosted more than 150 events with 25,000 library patrons and staff in 28 states and Canadian provinces since launching its national tour in New York in August 2008.
