Summer Bookmobile Service: Bad News and Good News
The bad news is that the new bookmobile will not be ready until after early autumn. The truck manufacturer received a higher volume of orders than expected and was not able to send the vehicle onto the specialty builder on time.
The good news is that we will run a small version of the bookmobile from a rented van for service from July 14 through August 27. The schedules are still being developed so check back to this website to see the routes. We will not have a musical horn when we arrive in the the neighborhoods so listen for the honking!
