New Bookmobile Vehicle Construction Estimated for March Completion
Written by admin, February 17th, 2020   

We wanted to update our patrons and donors about the progress on our new bookmobile construction. We were originally planning for a January launch but our custom bookcase craftsman underestimated the amount of time he’d need and also lost some weeks due to illness. All shelving components should be completed very soon and then we’ll be hoping for quick turnaround on the wood finishing, which is a separate contractor. The finishing shop is inundated with home cabinetry work due to post-fire home reconstruction, so fingers crossed they’ll be able to get us through the queue smoothly.

Thanks for your continued support and patience! We know you are just as anxious to see this new rig in action as we are.

When you start with Rotary, good things happen, and we are grateful to be back in partnership with the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa Foundation for 2020! They have made a grant toward our Education for All Ages initiative, which focuses on the broad access to high quality educational reading material that makes a community strong. We look forward to putting this support to use throughout the year. Thank you, Santa Rosa Rotarians!
