August Third Thursday will be bookier and geekier when the Athenaeum hosts The Overdrive Digital Bookmobile, a bright blue 74-foot, 18-wheel tractor-trailer high-tech update of the traditional bookmobile. This Virtual Library houses personal computers, eReaders, mp3 players and other portable electronic devices.
Visitors to the Digital Bookmobile can tour colorful informative exhibits, experience eBooks and audiobooks on interactive computer stations, browse the Athenaeum’s live website, and learn how to download eBooks and audiobooks from the Athenaeum right to their eReaders and other portable devices. And visitors to the Digital Bookmobile will be entered into a contest to win prizes, provided by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. Join us for the fun!
The Digital Bookmobile visit is sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum in support of Pittsfield’s 4th annual WordXWord Festival: August 11-18, 8 days of Wall to Wall Words.
