Tulare County Library introduced its new bookmobile during the December 8 meeting of the Tulare County Board of Supervisors. After a brief presentation, the Board joined staff outside for a ribbon cutting. The new vehicle expands Library and Literacy to all of Tulare County.
The event featured a short tour by library staff showing the many things this new service provides. The program plans to include science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) and makerspace tools including sewing machines, computers, and many traditional library and literacy services.
The event also introduced staff’s new engagement effort titled “Pop Up Tulare County.” Pop Up Tulare County’s goal is to reach more of the community, especially in rural areas. The library is already working with the communities of Badger and Traver for bookmobile stops.
