Help us raise funds for a new bookmobile! A new and upgraded bookmobile will replace our 19 year old bookmobile that has traveled more than 122,000 miles and has developed mechanical and interior issues. The bookmobile travels throughout Burleigh County and beyond, delivering books and material to children and adults living in rural areas. It makes over 500 scheduled stops a year.
The future Bookmobile will be 29 feet in length with over 2,100 linear inches of shelving, allowing for a collection of 3,000 items. Skylights will fill the interior with direct sunlight. Two staff work stations will be available for patrons to check out their material. The vehicle will be wired to allow for a public address system to be used during outreach events.
The new Bookmobile vehicle will ensure Burleigh County residents have access to much needed library services. Individuals in rural assisted living facilities and rural students rely on the Bookmobile as their source for information, educational resources, and personal enrichment opportunities.
