Edmonton Public Library hopes to put bookmobiles back on the street in 2013 | are bookmobiles obsolete? | Scoop.it

"Leanne Drury Melsness, manager of the library’s digital literacy initiatives, said the vans would be much more than bookmobiles, but would actual aim to bring all of what the library has to offer to the community.

“They would have access to some of EPLs great content and e-content,” she said. “Picture, like a pop-up Internet café, or a recording studio or a gaming kit.”

In addition the library hopes to be able to issue library cards from the vans and would aim to have them at local events and festivals.

“The types of places we could travel to would be events, and parks, child-care facilties and hospitals there are many different institutions,” she said."
