National Bookmobile Day

0

April 16th is National Bookmobile Day!

National Bookmobile Day was first celebrated in 2010 and is now an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation’s bookmobiles and the dedicated professionals who make quality bookmobile outreach possible in their communities.

LHB0043B-300x218

In 1946, the Akron-Summit County Public Library obtained its first Bookmobile and began delivering books to Summit County residents living in the outlying areas of Akron. Communities such as Bath, Copley, Coventry, Northhampton, Richfield, and Springfield, areas without their own community libraries, were served by the Akron Library through the new Bookmobile. Children as well as adults visited the truck at their respective community centers. A year later, a need for a second Bookmobile became apparent and a second one was added which extended outreach to agencies working with children throughout the county.

Today, the Mobile Services continues building on its own legacy of library service by reaching beyond the library buildings with two Bookmobiles which continue serving children and adults in a variety of settings. Both Bookmobiles visit schools, daycares, Head Starts, and neighborhoods year round. Rain or shine, sleet or snow, Mobile Services is on the road bringing the library to people and encouraging learning while embracing and respecting diversity in our community. To find out the schedule of the Akron-Summit County Public Library bookmobiles, please visit them on the Mobile Services blog.

Audrey Hepburn: An Elegant Spirit ~ Sean Hepburn Ferrer
In this heartfelt tribute to his mother, Sean Hepburn Ferrer offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit is a stunning compilation of nearly 300 photographs, many straight from the family album and never before published; archival documents, personal correspondence, and mementos; even paintings and illustrations from the actress herself.

P is for Pumpkin ~ Kathy-Jo Wargin
Presents rhyming sentences for each letter of the alphabet that remind the reader of God’s blessings in autumn.

Matilda’s Cat ~ Emily Gravett
Illustrations and simple text show Matilda’s attempts to learn what her cat likes best, as well as the real answer.

Love Is You and Me ~ Monica Sheehan
Illustrations and simple, rhyming text reveal that love, whether between a parent and child, best friends, or even a dog and a mouse, is the greatest gift of all.

Matched ~ Ally Condie
All her life, Cassia has never had a choice. The Society dictates everything: when and how to play, where to work, where to live, what to eat and wear, when to die, and most importantly to Cassia as she turns 17, who to marry. When she is Matched with her best friend Xander, things couldn’t be more perfect. But why did her neighbor Ky’s face show up on her match disk as well?
