National Library Week: Hope on Wheels

The bookmobile conjures up all sorts of images to devoted library users. It may have been the library of our youth. Today, the humble bookmobile is likely to be a mobile computer lab as well as a library of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs on wheels.  Yesterday we looked at librarians on horseback, today I’ve linked to a great NPR-StoryCorps program on bookmobiles. I hope you’ll take the three short minutes to enjoy the video. If ever there was a great explanation of why we need libraries of all sorts, it is beautifully expressed in this video. In a word–Hope.
