Taking the Library Out for a (Digital) Spin!
June 16, 2014
The first bookmobile in the United States was the brainchild of Mary Titcomb, the librarian for the Washington County Free Library in Maryland, in 1905. Ms. Titcomb believed that the entire county should have access to library books, and with the help of Joshua Thomas and the Library Wagon, she made it happen! (For more about the Library Wagon, visit www.whilbr.org/bookmobile/index.aspx.)
This week, MCPL is carrying on Ms. Titcomb's legacy with a more modern twist! The OverDrive bookmobile is coming to bring the library directly to you...through your computer or mobile devices! Trained experts from MCPL and OverDrive will be on-hand to answer your questions about eBooks and eAudiobooks, and show you how you can borrow them for free with your MCPL Access Pass! Visit the Blue Springs North Branch on Friday from noon - 6 p.m., or the Woodneath Library Center on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., to take part in this modern piece of history and learn something new at your library!
