Digital Bookmobile

The SAILS Network will host the Digital Bookmobile, an immersive download experience inside a 74-foot high tech trailer, on September 19th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lakeville Public Library. As members of the SAILS Network, Bridgewater residents are invited to participate.

The Digital Bookmobile is housed inside an 18-wheel tractor-trailer. This community outreach vehicle is a high-tech update on the traditional bookmobile that has served communities for decades. It 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 the Bridgewater 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, and music.

The Digital Bookmobile is a service of SAILS Library Network and is operated by Overdrive, Inc. For more information click here.

SAILS is a member-driven and funded organization, supporting libraries throughout Southeastern Massachusetts.
