Road Blog

I can’t believe how fast this year flew by! Now that we have finished the tour route for the year, I’ve been reflecting on 2014 and all of the fantastic Digital Bookmobile events that happened across the country. This past year, the truck has traveled to 25 states and 1 province of Canada. We were hosted in many libraries, schools, …

Event Spotlight: Pasadena Public Library

Our week spent in Texas was excellent. Not only was I able to catch up with some college friends and eat great Tex-Mex, I also worked with innovative librarians along the way. For example, I had the pleasure of meeting Anita Patel, Adult Services Librarian, who thought of creative ways to promote the Digital Bookmobile event at Pasadena Public Library. …

After a short break in our schedule, it is nice being back out on the road and I’m enjoying the sunny southern weather. Since many of our events are hosted at libraries, I would love to talk about our recent event with one of our school partners. On Wednesday, the Digital Bookmobile visited Hutchinson Middle School and we taught students …

Other than the occasional rainstorm, visiting New England was great! When my co-worker and I were in Rhode Island, our diet was seafood. And we loved it. We tried clam “chowda” from so many different restaurants and saw some lighthouses and mansions on the way. We also enjoyed talking to library patrons in the New England area and appreciate everyone …

I had so much fun while we were in Canada! My trip was full of poutine, hockey, seeing the Maze Runner movie, shopping, and more hockey. I already can’t wait until we come back but before I get too ahead of myself, I would love to talk more about the Digital Bookmobile’s recent travels. Overall, we spent two weeks in …

The views have been gorgeous during our travels in the Western region. I’ve walked a lot of trails, climbed mountains, and have been enjoying the beautiful scenery. My co-worker, Heather Tunstall who is our Public Relations Specialist, showed me Garden of the Gods after one of our events in Colorado. The red rocks were just breathtaking. Here she is showing …

Event Spotlight: Tempe Public Library

Road Blog

This year has been excellent for the Digital Bookmobile so far and I would like to highlight our visit at Tempe Public Library in April in particular. Patrons were able to take a tour of the truck and discover Tempe’s digital collection, and we showed many new users how to download titles on their various devices. In fact, a visitor …

DigitalBookmobile.com gets fancy

Road Blog

Don’t get us wrong: we loved our old DigitalBookmobile.com. It served its purpose, and was a great place to find pictures, updates on where OverDrive’s 74-foot-long tractor-trailer would be next, and what local media are saying about the events. But really, there’s no comparison to the newly redesigned website. If you haven’t had a chance to look around, we invite …
