Roanoke County Public Library introduces new robot, Vector

Local News

Roanoke County Public Library has premiered their newest robot, Vector.

RCPL was the first public library in the country to recruit Pepper, and now they are the first to feature Vector, the new Al robot from Anki Robotics.

Vector is a friendly robot that library visitors can interact with at all RCPL locations.

People can also now check out a micro:bit to learn coding. RCPL is one of the first library systems to offer these small computers to patrons. The kits were donated by the Roanoke Robotics and Makers Club of Southwest Virginia.

If you’d like to meet their original robot, Pepper, go to the South County Library on Thursdays in January from 4-5 p.m.
