Reading Happiness 😃

Traveling with the Digital Bookmobile this year will be me, Lauren Bajda! I am thrilled to bring the Digital Bookmobile to communities around North America to promote reading happiness through eBooks and audiobooks. As a world traveler and literacy advocate, I look forward to showing users one of the quickest ways to get reading, no matter their age or ability.

Our 2018 tour will run from February to November. The new and improved 42-foot long Toterhome will provide a newly designed experience for users.
