Beep, Beep!   A Look at the Impact and Implementation of a Bookmobile Service

Library outreach is increasingly important and what better way to reach customers than to take the library to their doorstep. What has made your bookmobile successful? What challenges have you faced? Come prepared to share your knowledge and pick up some great ideas from other library systems. Let’s look under the hood of your library’s bookmobile program. As an icebreaker, bring your funniest and most challenging moment running a bookmobile to share with the group.

Interest Group Facilitator:  Claire Olson


Welcome to the public library interest group everyone! I work as the Manager of Literacy Projects for the Jacksonville Public Library. I am passionate about the power and the possibility of public libraries. I'm especially interested in library outreach and how public libraries can serve the needs of their communities through collaboration and creativity. I think we all bring such talent and experience to our roles in the public library - it's what makes us all so cool! Join me this year as we explore the possibilities of our public libraries.
