The Digital Bookmobile National Tour (www.digitalbookmobile.com) will showcase the eBook download service from Round Rock Public Library. It will take place at the CHASCO Family YMCA, 1812 N. Mays Street, Round Rock from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22.

At this free event, readers of all ages will learn how to download eBooks from the library through interactive demonstrations and instructional videos. A gadget gallery—featuring Kindle®, iPod® touch, Android™ tablet, NOOK™, Sony® Reader™, BlackBerry®, Windows® Phone, and more—will help visitors discover portable devices that are compatible with the library’s download service.

Library card holders can also check out and download digital titles any time, anywhere by visiting http://roundrocktexas.gov/overdrive.

The Digital Bookmobile is housed inside an 18-wheel tractor-trailer. This 74-foot community outreach vehicle is a high-tech update of the traditional bookmobile that has served communities for decades. The vehicle is equipped with broadband Internet-connected PCs, high definition monitors, premium sound systems, and a variety of portable media players, all of which help visitors explore Round Rock Public Library's download service.

Interactive learning stations give visitors an opportunity to search the library’s digital media collection, use supported mobile devices, and sample eBooks, audiobooks, music, and video.
