So many Cecil County citizens tell us that they remember the impact the bookmobile had on them when they were children. Today, lack of transportation and isolation is still a challenge for many Cecil County children and families and our bookmobile is as important as ever to continue opening the world of reading, books, and imagination to Cecil’s children.
We recognize the needs of our community and target our bookmobile outreach and services to meet the needs of children and families less likely to come to a library branch. We have introduced programs like “My Special Book” for our youngest students to come aboard the bookmobile and choose a high-quality hard-covered book to keep.
Our bookmobile is a critical tool in our outreach to these communities but growing mechanical issues have created disruptions in service. We need a new bookmobile to ensure continued, high-quality service. Together with the Friends of the Cecil County Public Library, we plan to raise significant funds toward the purchase of the new vehicle.
Strong community support of this indispensable program is vitally important to securing additional funding from the county for the purchase of a new bookmobile.
