Bookmobile sets 2022 Summer Schedule

Look for The Rodman Public Library Bookmobile to be out and about this summer.

The 34-foot library on wheels has 21 weekly stops slated throughout June, July and August, including a return to the Alliance Farmers’ Market at its new location at the corner of Union Avenue and State Street.

“We’re very excited to get back to the Farmers’ Market,” said Bookmobile Manager Jamie Warnock. “That is always one of our favorite stops. This year, we have something special planned.”

The Bookmobile will provide take and make craft projects (while supplies last) for children during its stop at the market on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. between June 25 and August 20. Other activities such as stories and crafts may also be in the works.

Of course, patrons will be able to check out materials from the Bookmobile. They may even place items on hold and request to pick them up at the Bookmobile at any of the public stops the Bookmobile makes this summer.

“We are here to provide great service to the community and we’re excited to see everyone again,” said Warnock.

In addition, the Bookmobile will visit Beech Creek Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve three Fridays this summer -- June 17, July 22, and August 19 -- for Literacy in the Gardens, providing stories and other activities between 1:30 and 2:30 p.m.

In 2021, the Bookmobile made limited stops due to pandemic restrictions. This summer, it returns to a full slate of stops, with weekly visits to each of its stops.

“That makes it easy for everyone to remember when we are going to be there,” explained Warnock, whose staff includes Dan Cherry, Jodie Gerber, Jeff Kennedy, and James Sedoris. “We hope to see everyone out on the road again this summer.”
