Bookmobile takes library to rural CO areas


Colorado Springs Gazette Has One on The Pikes Peak Library District bookmobile. Six days a week, weather permitting, the district’s two bookmobiles trek out to the small towns scattered across the vast expanses of the county north and east of Colorado Springs. In an area where a visit to a bricks-and-mortar library can be a daylong haul, the arrival of the library on wheels is a big deal — like Santa arriving by sleigh. Folks with totes and plastic grocery sacks crowd aboard the vehicle, eagerly choosing from the 4,500 books, magazines, CDs and videos.
