In an effort to maintain the safety of our library and school partners and event visitors, along with our Digital Bookmobile staff, we have made the tough decision to cancel the 2022 tour. We plan to resume our in-person tour in 2023. In the meantime, we are offering virtual events. You can request a virtual event on our Request Event page. Make sure to follow us on Instagram for further updates.

About the Digital Bookmobile

Aboard the 53-foot-long Toterhome, you’ll learn how to borrow an ebook or audiobook and so much more; all you need to get started is a library card!

A high-tech update to the traditional Bookmobile, this community outreach vehicle is for public libraries and schools to promote their digital catalog of ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and streaming video to their communities. Readers of all ages can learn about and engage with digital books at their local school or library inside the Digital Bookmobile. The traveling exhibit tours North America and contains several interactive learning stations. All Digital Bookmobile events are free to host and attend.
