NATIONAL BOOKMOBILE DAY
National Bookmobile Day is an annual event observed each April. On this day, we honor the access to information and resources our nation’s bookmobiles make available to our communities and the professionals who work diligently to provide these services. For more than 100 years bookmobiles have brought a library to those that otherwise may not have access to one.
Bookmobiles are mobile libraries designed to travel from neighborhood to neighborhood. They hold a variety of books, periodicals and usually run on a schedule. Many have computer access and check out books much like a local library. Books can be returned on the next scheduled stop or at the associated library.
