Alamance to add Old Fashion “Bookmobile” in October
Call it the return of the bookmobile. Alamance County Public Libraries plans to launch a new mobile library this fall. The new library on wheels will function much like the bookmobile that ran throughout Alamance County from the 1940s to the 1980s. Library officials have been discussing taking the library’s resources into the community for the past four years. It looked as if it would become a reality in 2020; however, the coronavirus pandemic hit, putting the brakes on the mobile unit. Now, an official launch of the new bookmobile will take place in October. Between now and then, you may catch a glimpse of the mobile library as it will be making some trial-run community visits to ensure its systems work as officials intend.
