BOOKMOBILE CAMPAIGN CROSSES THE FINISH LINE
New Bookmobile Has Rolled In!
The Bismarck Library Foundation, Inc. is happy to announce a new Burleigh County Bookmobile has rolled into town!
The Foundation helped raise more than its goal of $150,000 to pay for the construction of a new Bookmobile. The fundraising goal was achieved with the help of six grants, three business partnerships, a large contribution from a family estate, board member donations, money raised at the Art of Books fundraiser, and overall, donations from more than 287 individual and businesses. This campaign has been funded by people who love the Bookmobile and want to see it continue doing good work.
The MAGIC SCHOOL BUS level donors are as follows:
American Bank Center
Otto Bremer Trust

Tom and Frances Leach Foundation
Midco *In-Kind Gift of Advertisement Airtime
Sally Oremland Estate
The previous Burleigh County Bookmobile served the residents of Burleigh County since 1975. The library-on-wheels needed to be replaced from pulling in more than 129,000 miles of service and 20 years of use.
The new Bookmobile will have an approximate lifespan of 20 years, and with beautiful graphics can be easily spotted in Burleigh County. We invite you to see the new Bookmobile for yourself!
