Why don’t people go the main library or branches?
Barriers like transportation, language, work schedules and residential locations may prohibit people from visiting Santori Library or the branches.
How do teachers use the Bookmobile to support literacy?
APLD’s School and Early Literacy librarians work in tandem with Bookmobile staff, school librarians and educators to promote, encourage and provide programming and materials for early literacy. Moreover, teachers may (and they do!) request materials from APLD. We gather the materials, deliver them to the school and pick them up. The Bookmobile also supports teachers by providing reading materials beyond what their school libraries can provide. It enables the schools to focus their small book budgets on curriculum, while the Bookmobile brings enrichment and recreational reading.
