Free Bookmobile Restricted to Limited Routes — Seeking Funding for New Vehicle
Written by admin, August 16th, 2019   

THE FREE BOOKMOBILE SERVICE HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO EXTREMELY LIMITED ROUTES. Our bookmobile engine no longer meets California air quality standards so we can only operate it on a low-mileage exemption. We will be prioritizing our 13 public-access locations for weekend/evening service, plus a few other events to help us meet our grant obligations. Our website schedule page has been updated and we hope to see you out there! We still have terrific books to offer everyone at these select locations.

Ultimately we must acquire a vehicle with engine model year 2010 or newer. This will likely cost $30,000 or more. We’re getting to work on assessing the equipment options and we’ll be posting again here about our fundraising efforts. A new bookmobile will allow us to get back to serving children at their schools and seniors at their residences during weekdays. We apologize for the hiatus in these events.

If you can help us, please contact Director Glen Weaver (phone number and email address on the Contact page of our website: You can also CLICK HERE to go straight to our donation page.
