CHICAGO – The ALA Office for Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS) is calling all libraries participating in National Bookmobile Day to share the ways they are celebrating the event.  Participants are encouraged to share their ideas either by contributing to the National Bookmobile Day Wiki, joining in on the conversation on the NBD ALA Connect community, or by emailing their ideas and stories to nationalbookmobileday@ala.org.

 Held during National Library Week on Wednesday, April 14, 2010, the inaugural National Bookmobile Day will celebrate the contributions of our nation's bookmobiles and the dedicated professionals who make quality bookmobile outreach possible in their communities.
