Bookmobiles bring the library to you

Sep 6, 2016


The Alameda County Bookmobile tours the county with books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and most everything else you can find at your local library. 

From Dublin to San Lorenzo, Fremont to Union City, and on to Castro Valley, the long white bus stops once every three weeks for about an hour at schools and in neighborhoods.


My local library is about six miles away from my house. But, I see the Bookmobile in my neighborhood every other week. I was curious to find out what goes on inside, so I hopped on board to speak with librarian Gina Rose.
