DIGITAL BOOKMOBILE TO STOP AT TWO TCCL LOCATIONS

   Do you have questions about demystifying e-books?  The Digital Bookmobile National Tour will stop at two Tulsa City-County Library locations to provide insight and answers on accessing digital books.

   The public is invited to learn more at these two locations:

  • Oct. 16, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Hardesty Regional Library, 8316 E. 93rd St.
  • Oct. 17, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Martin Regional Library, 2601 S. Garnett Road.

   At these free events, readers of all ages will learn how to download e-books from the library through interactive demonstrations and high-definition instructional videos.  A gadget gallery features Kindle, iPod touch, Android tablet, NOOK, Sony Reader, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and others to help discover portable devices that are compatible with the library’s download service.

   The Digital Bookmobile is housed inside an 18-wheel tractor trailer.  This 74-foot community outreach vehicle is equipped with broadband Internet-connected PCs, high-definition monitors, premium sound systems and a variety of portable media players.  Interactive learning stations give visitors an opportunity to search TCCL’s digital media collection, use supported mobile devices, and sample e-books, audiobooks, music and video.  The Digital Bookmobile is operated by OverDrive, Inc., which is the provider of TCCL’s e-book resources.

   E-books are convenient and easy to use, here are several reasons why:

  • There are never late fees; e-books check themselves in automatically.
  • You can check out up to 10 titles at any given time.
  • You can download titles at any time of day or night.
  • If you place a hold on a title, you will receive an email when it’s ready for download.

   For more information on TCCL’s e-book service call the AskUs Hotline, 918-549-7323, or visit the library’s website, www.tulsalibrary.org.
