Have You Hugged Your Bookmobile Lately?
In case you're thinking, "I've never heard of 'National Bookmobile Day' before," don't worry, your memory isn't going. 2010 marks the first-ever National Bookmobile Day, created by the American Library Association "to raise awareness about bookmobiles and the vital services they provide."In all kinds of communities - urban, suburban and rural - mobile libraries provide valuable outreach. They bring books, magazines, music, movies, even Internet access, to people who may have no other connection to those resources. Learn more about National Bookmobile Day and bookmobiles on the American Library Association Web site.
Are you a fan of the DPPL Mobile Library? Why not use National Bookmobile Day as an opportunity to send in a note of support? You can do that right here, by typing in your comments. Anonymous comments are accepted, but you are welcome to sign your comment as well. We would love to hear from you!
