If you were listening to KERA this morning, you might have heard about the Dallas Public Library’s launch of its Digital Dallas program. Councilman Ron Natinsky is already on board. So now, instead of heading out to the library, the library comes right to your computer. Cool, huh?
Today, the Digital Bookmobile stops at the Oak Lawn branch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the public is invited to take a look-see. So perhaps, you still need to head to the library this one more time. The bookmobile will introduce the new service and operated by OverDrive Inc., which actually powers the library to offer the downloads.
I went to start the process to give you a play-by-play but I’m still looking over the selection deciding which looks worthwhile. And I need to download the OverDrive software, too. So far, “Where the Wild Things Are” is the only book interesting me and none of the music. But I figure they’ll add as the program grows. Gosh, I hope so.
