Did you catch our bookmobile out and about town this summer? It was a busy season for the bookmobile, which served at least 2,220 additional customers through outreach and community events.
The bookmobile attended regular Storytime in the Park sessions at both Pioneer and Frontier Parks. The program was extended to eight weeks, with storytimes and bookmobile visits every Tuesday and Wednesday. Bookmobile staff attribute this summer's great attendance to all that nice weather we had, serving at least 400 customers each month. On one day alone, the bookmobile saw 105 customers at Storytime in the Park events.
Our mobile library also visited four Arlington Heights Park District summer camps each month during June and July, giving campers an extra opportunity to grab a book for some summer reading.
You might have also seen the bookmobile at community events such as Picnic in the Park, the Centennial Park Annual Picnic, Pirate Party at Lake Arlington, National Night Out, Mane Event and Fiesta de Arlington.
The bookmobile will continue to make regular stops throughout Arlington Heights this fall. Click here for the schedule.
