This Week at SBPL I Discovered ... 35th Birthday of the Bookmobile!
Celebrating 35 years of Discovery on the Road!
Mixing a little old-fashioned personal service with current materials for education and entertainment, our colorful Bookmobile bus carries hundreds of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs to South Brunswick neighborhoods throughout the year.
After serving the community for more than 35 years, it continues to be a valued service for all ages, especially for those who have difficulty getting to the main Library, such as the elderly, disabled, those without transportation, the very young, and the economically disadvantaged. The visiting schedule changes four times a year so it can be where and when it is needed most.
Bookmobile service began in 1976; about 10 years after the main library opened its doors. Its service has kept pace with the computer revolution and current print and audio-visual collections.
