RCPL was the first public library in the U.S. to recruit Pepper®, the humanoid robot to serve as part of the library’s team. We've partnered with RobotLAB, a San Francisco based company, to create content and develop a variety of programming for patrons of all ages, to be delivered in-house at all library locations and via outreach efforts. Developed by SoftBank Robotics, Pepper will also be used as a host to drive traffic to lesser used library areas.
Keep an eye out for Pepper at our popular STEM, technology, and coding programs. You'll also be able to see Pepper near our service desks on select days.
For more information on Pepper, call the library at 540-772-7507.
