Have you dreamed of bringing mobile library services to your community? Maybe you’re weighing the benefits of getting a book bike versus a van versus a pull-behind caddy?
Attend this panel discussion to hear procedure and tips from several library staffers who operate pop-up library vehicles in their communities. In a separate program block (Session 5), visit us in the parking lot to see some pop-up library vehicles in person and talk with their drivers/riders about the pros and cons of each and the services they offer.
