This isn't the bookmobile you might remember as a kid.

The Digital Bookmobile is coming to Delaware.

Judy Patterson of OverDrive, a distributor of e-books that is sponsoring the bookmobile, tells what you'll see inside the 74-foot-long 18-wheel tractor trailer.

"On the truck, there are seven main workstations inside and four laptops outside, and they're all equipped with demos, how-to videos, and then the library site, so patrons can see what's available to check out," she said.
