Most people know the power of reading a book, even if they don't read them that often. However, it's not easy for all people to access free books at the local library. The Poudre River Public Library is setting out to change that with a cutting-edge bookmobile.

Several Northern Colorado organizations got together to fund a bookmobile called, Evie. Evie is not just easy access to books for those who live remotely or cannot access public library buildings. Evie is a first. Colorado's first all-electric bookmobile. Evie is essentially a super-powered transit van.

According to the Poudre River Public Library, Evie's time on the road will be spent focusing 70% on early childhood literacy, 20% on older adults, and 10% on special events. Evie will carry "about 1,500 books and audiobooks. She serves as a library card sign-up location and a place to check out/return materials. She also focuses on technology and offers printing, Wi-Fi hotspots, and more."

Evie's exterior is super cool too drawing inspiration from the mural of Rafael Lopez found in downtown Fort Collins. This van just gets more and more awesome.

Also, get this, you can request to have Evie at your special event which is much less creepy than a clown.

Catch Evie at the Earth Day Fort Collins on April 22nd or at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery on May 16th. A complete list of locations to find Evie can be found on the Poudre River Public Library website.
