Digital Bookmobile Makes Stop in Redding

Redding, Calif. -

The bookmobile visited the Redding Public Library this afternoon -- but this time with a twist.

It was a digital bookmobile complete with laptops, plasma screen TVs, iPods and iPads.

The bookmobile was there to promote Redding Public Library’s digital book selection.

Redding Public Library is the first library to offer digital books to borrow in Northern California.

All you need to borrow one is a library card and access to the internet.  The books even return themselves when they are due back, eliminating the danger of late fees.

Bookmobile staff said that they do not anticipate they will eliminate paper books, but the digital books will make it easier for more people to get the books they want faster.

The bookmobile has left for other parts of the country, but you can still get your ebooks on almost any electronic device you have. Just go to the library and sign up for their ebook lending program.
