Bookmobile Travels Through Twin Falls


By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) This bus isn't your ordinary kind of bus; it's a library on wheels

"If you can't get to the library, we're there to get the library to you," says Jason Stewart, Twin Falls Public Library.

The Bookmobile is a mobile library service traveling through the Twin Falls area.

The Bookmobile got its start about one year ago, and now with the new summer season upon us, they're switching things up and making new stops to make things convenient for you.

"What happens during the winter is we go to a lot of schools. We go after the schools or during the school for different activities. So in the summer time, we tend to add our parks in, we have farmers market in again this year, and so a little bit more of the outdoor activities is what we do," explains Susan Ash, Twin Falls Public Library Director.

Not only are they stopping at places where activities are going on, but also places that are easily accessible to the whole community.

"We do, do a lot of senior centers, and day cares and everything just because that's where people are that have a little bit more trouble getting to the library. So we're here to bring the materials to them,” Stewart says.

After serving over ten thousand people in its first year, the Bookmobile continues to be a Twin Falls favorite.

"It’s just great to get out into the community to meet the people who aren't able to get to the library," Stewart says.

"I think that everybody just loves a bookmobile, books on wheels, and to come and visit," Ash adds.
