LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. - Even in this digital age, the library is still in style.
The digital book mobile stopped by the Mid-Continent Public Library in Lee's Summit on Wednesday.
It visits libraries and schools across the country to promote e-books and audio books.
"We make people aware of the fact that they can download the books. All they need is an internet connection, computer device and a library card and they can do it for free 24-7," said digital library specialist Dan Conochan.
Inside, there are interactive computer work stations linked to the library's website.
"I see people all the time that have just gotten these devices. Found out one of their many uses is that they can read on them. It's definitely reignited their interest in both the library and reading," Conochan said.
The digital book mobile also has a video lounge and a gadget gallery, so people can sample different devices.
