The Tech Mobile

The Tech Mobile: a large vehicle with open doors and extended canopies

The Tech Mobile is another of our mobile branches! A giant vehicle the size of a large RV, the Tech Mobile is loaded with all sorts of technology that’s ready to hit the road. It can serve as a mobile hotspot in the community, offer STEAM programming and computer classes, let you host a meeting in our meeting space, and much more. The Tech Mobile permanently hosts 8 computer stations, printing, wireless access, a small teaching or conference area, and an individual one-person office. It’s a versatile library location for diverse programming and computer help, both inside and out.

Technology on the Tech Mobile includes:

  • Laptop computers, with software similar to public computers at our other locations
  • Wifi for internal and external use – look for the network named “DCoLibrary – Techmobile”
  • Noise cancelling headphones
  • A printer for use during programs
  • A monitor to connect to in the meeting space

…and more. We also bring other technology from the MakerLab and Innovation Lab as needed for programs and events.
