As we all know, literacy and access to these materials are fundamental to a productive society. The Community Foundation was happy to partner with the Monroe County Library System to bring back the bookmobile to provide free access to educational, informational and recreational resources to all.

We were so excited to get a visit from the bookmobile! The
funds we provided helped bring this program back to the
Monroe County Library System after a 20 year absence from
our community!

Our $25,000 donation to this project will support these efforts by removing barriers, equalizing opportunities and increasing access for our community while promoting literacy and a life-long love of reading.

The bookmobile has the capacity to bring 1,800 books to the most vulnerable populations in our community. Onboard technology will allow patrons to utilize the Library’s extensive digital resources. Transportation issues will no longer limit a family’s access to library resources.
