THE BOOKMOBILE! WHAT A THRILL!

by Jennifer Hughes

We all have fond summer memories from our childhood. Visiting the community swimming pool, baseball games, and chasing lightning bugs are just a few of my own. However, a treat from the ice cream truck or a visit to the local library took the cake for me!

If you’re unable to visit the Library and find it challenging to meet your educational, informational, and entertainment needs, then a visit to the Rapides Parish Library Bookmobile stop might be a sweet summer treat! After all, there isn’t anything better than a good book on a summer afternoon.

The RPL Outreach department has been delivering Library items and warm smiles to Bookmobile stop patrons in Rapides Parish for over ten years!

As a Bookmobile patron, you may check out up to 25 library items every two weeks with your library card. If you don’t have a library card, RPL’s friendly outreach staff can issue one to you at the stop. Patrons interested in certain genres, authors, or specific books may request them during the Bookmobile visit or by phone and check them out on their next visit.

The Bookmobile schedule may be found on the Rapides Parish Library website event calendar at https://www.rpl.org or by contacting Londa Price at 318-445-2411 x 1066.

All safety precautions are being taken during the COVID-19 Pandemic with social distancing, hand sanitation stations, and mask requirements.

If you or a loved one feel that the Rapides Parish Bookmobile service might be a sweet summer treat, we invite you to give it a try. We will deliver the Library to you!
