What literacy does for individuals and families cannot be overstated. To many in our communities, bringing the books to them is the only way to fuel lifelong reading. Enter: NYPL’s Bookmobiles. In their words:
The new NYPL Bookmobile will hit the streets in the coming months. The mobile library will have many roles, including making stops at community events and local partner organizations, as well as providing dedicated service in neighborhoods where the local branch is temporarily closed for renovation.
The Bookmobile will be capable of transporting up to 1,000 books for patrons of all ages that have either been requested for checkout or can be browsed curbside. Books can also be returned or renewed, and New Yorkers can sign up for library cards and receive reference and reader services.
Congrats, NYPL, on the launch of your new Bookmobile!
