Over the next few months, the New York Public Library will be bringing books to residents of the Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan via a new fleet of sleek, cherry red-colored vehicles. The new roving libraries, which can hold up hundreds of books at a time, will offer a wide selection for kids, young adults, and adults. Readers can also place books on hold through the bookmobiles—so if they want a specific book, they can order it and pick it up at one of the vehicles. The bookmobiles are expected to start
making their way through the Bronx this June, and through the other two boroughs sometime in the fall, after undergoing testing this month. Check the NYPL's Twitter feed
to find out where they'll be parked.
It's great to see this celebrated service returning to the streets on NYC. Reading IS fundamental, folks!
