We've previously discussed bookmobiles in these forums (e.g,. Have you ever used a bookmobile, mobile library, or traveling library? and Come participate in the new poll/discussion: Have you ever used a bookmobile, mobile library, or traveling library?). Such discussions make me nostalgic; I loved frequenting bookmobiles while growing up, but they no longer circulate either in my hometown, nor where I live or work now.

 

I'm happy for Brooklynites, though, because not only do the Brooklyn Public Library's "Bookmobiles drive around Brooklyn every day, bringing the spirit of the Library to the streets", but BPL's celebrating its recently redesigned Bookmobile with a fun event, described here and on Facebook. BPL even has a webpage titled: "Bookmobile".
