Bookmobile Off to the Races

bookmobile-at-track1 Bookmobile staffers Bev Hoffman and Al Piskorski are shown with the bookmobile as it made a stop on Saturday, June 13, at Arlington Park Racecourse for their Teacher Appreciation Event. The event honored teachers from area school districts, and included a book drive to collect books for the Library's Backstretch program. The bookmobile goes to the Backstretch on Fridays from 10:30 a.m.–1 p.m. through September 4. In addition, children from the Backstretch come to the Library to participate in the summer reading program. The bookmobile also goes out to block parties and other types of community events. If you would like the bookmobile to come to your event, contact Community Services Manager Joyce Voss, 847-506-2638, or Bookmobile Specialist Jose Maldonado, 847-870-3713.
