Libraries across the country will observe National Library Outreach Day on Wednesday, April 7. Formerly known as National Bookmobile Day, National Library Week is an opportunity to celebrate the invaluable role that bookmobiles and library staff play in bringing library services to those in need. For more than 100 years, bookmobiles have delivered information, technology, and resources for life-long learning to Americans of all walks of life. The Humboldt County Bookmobile travels to far reaches of the county every month and is eagerly greeted wherever it goes.
Find more information on the bookmobile schedule on the Humboldt County Library webpage. Anyone with a Humboldt County library card can meet the bookmobile and check out library materials at bookmobile stops in Orleans, Garberville, the Mattole Valley, or along the Avenue of the Giants. Take a pre-pandemic look at the bookmobile service, and be aware that the bookmobile currently offers curbside service at all its stops. Remember to wear a mask!
National Library Outreach Day is celebrated on the Wednesday of National Library Week, and is coordinated by the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services, the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services (ABOS), and the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).
