Check Out the New Bookmobile
The Library’s new bookmobile is making its rounds with a new look and great updates users will appreciate. The new color and graphics on the outside are just the beginning. It is three feet longer so it has more room to carry the newest books, movies, music and magazines. It also has a higher ceiling, additional skylights and better lighting. And with lower steps into the bookmobile, it is even easier to come aboard. In addition to the added space, it has a new “green” feature – a battery pack that helps save fuel by using the generator less.

Second-Graders Send Thank You Cards to the Bookmobile
Check out the cute and clever thank-you cards that the library received from second graders at Dryden School. The bookmobile visited their class and staff member Julie Jurgens read a book about a bookmobile going to a zoo called Wild About Books by author Judy Sierra.
We Love a Parade!
We Love a Parade!
Instead of its usual Wednesday stops, the bookmobile took a slightly different route on July 4 - the parade route! With giant banners on two sides, the bookmobile helped spread the word about the summer reading program for kids. Library trustees, staff and 32 Junior Library Volunteers marched along the route as well and treated parade watchers to train-shaped silly bands as giveaways. Another library connection to the parade was our Executive Director Jason Kuhl (pictured above with pen in hand) who was one of the parade judges.
