Digital Bookmobile Arrives Tomorrow, Noon to 6pm


It's almost here: The Digital Bookmobile! Don't forget to stop by the Pierson Library tomorrow to try out gadgets, have a chance to win an mp3 player, and get face-to-face training on how to use OverDrive and download audio from Listen Up! Vermont.

On Tuesday, August 31 from noon to 6pm, the Digital Bookmobile will be at the Pierson Library in Shelburne. Located right on Route 7, this is a fantastic opportunity for your patrons to learn about and receive training directly from OverDrive about the Listen Up! Service, as well as see what is on the horizon – and, perhaps win an mp3 player! Readers of all ages are invited to learn about digital downloading and experience the Listen Up! Vermont service at this free community event.

Please help us spread the word about this great event! Remember those flyers you received? Why not print them out and remind your patrons to take a drive tomorrow? Would your staff prefer hands-on training to the web-based training we receive from OverDrive? Well, come on down!

Thanks, too to the Seven Days for mentioning our event, and to Ruth Hare at the Times Argus for mentioning it as well (this isn't the same bookmobile you might remember!).
