National Library Week: Wednesday | National Bookmobile Day!

Hey, all! Today’s National Library Week day is National Bookmobile Day! Woot! The library where I work has a Bookmobile, and I had actually never been on it until today! We had an open house for people to come take a look at our Bookmobile, enter raffles, sit in on storytimes, and do crafts. It was a gorgeous spring day (FINALLY), so the weather was on our side.

Our Bookmobile makes regular stops at local schools, nursing homes, and apartment complexes and delivers materials and services to those who can’t otherwise get transportation to the library. It is such a wonderful resource to the community and we are lucky to have it.

Today I was reminded of all the different types of mobile libraries there are around the world – from boat libraries, bicycle libraries, and donkey libraries – and how so many dedicated people strive to bring books to people who don’t have easy access to them. It’s really remarkable. Our Outreach staff are some of our most beloved by patrons. They truly bring books out into the world!

Happy National Bookmobile Day! Have you ever been on a Bookmobile? Or seen a book donkey?

Till next time!
