Napa Valley Bookmobile: Scarier Than Space Mountain
Sad News For Napa Valley California where a request that the library revive the long-defunct Bookmobile seems about as remote as the areas the traveling library served.
The Bookmobile was discontinued in August 1998, when the expensive vehicle required more maintenance than the county's public works equipment pool felt was fiscally reasonable.
Library Director Janet McCoy said this week that she had gone on a ride-along when the Bookmobile was still in service to areas such as Lake Berryessa, Pope Valley and Angwin. "It has to rank as one of the most terrifying days of my life," she told supervisors on Tuesday.
