Ottawa’s library is taking technology on the road with the launch of its new mini Bookmobile.

A 3D printer, drone copter and futuristic music makers are just some of the high-tech gadgets that will be rolling into neighbourhoods as part of the library’s new $130,000 mini Bookmobile.

Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, chair of the library board, and River Ward Coun. Riley Brockington also took part in the launch of the service at the Hunt Club Centre on June 3.
“Libraries are changing,” Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney said after the new van made its first stop at the Hunt Club Centre at 3310 McCarthy Rd., marking the launch of the service on June 3.
