Today is National Bookmobile Day!


Today is National Bookmobile Day, a time during National Library Week to celebrate our libraries on wheels!


The Allegany County Bookmobile has been around since 1961, although the shape of the vehicle itself has changed a bit over the years!  On board, you will find the latest and greatest in books, movies, music, and games for all ages.

“Libraries exist to serve readers, and bookmobiles are a terrific example of library service. If you are very old or very young, if you live off the beaten track, if you just can’t make it to your local library, bookmobiles are for you. A good bookmobile warms the cockles of my heart; it is a movable community, bringing books to the readers.” – Audrey Niffenegger, Honorary Chair, National Bookmobile Day 2011
