Beyond the Windshield

February 12, 2018 in Bookmobile

Welcome to Beyond the Windshield!!  

This will be the Blog page for the Scott County Bookmobile. Check back everyday and see where the bookmobile is traveling and what is happening beyond the windshield.

January was challenging due to weather conditions and illness.  When we were on the road, our patrons were more than happy to brave the weather, step aboard and check out materials for winter reading or find movies to hunker down by the fire.  It was great to see everyone after the holiday season.


Tuesday, Feb 12 – come visit the bookmobile at the Walcott grade school during the book fair and band concert. Bookmobile will be there from 3:45pm – 6:45pm. The concert starts at 7pm.

Saturday, Feb 17 – 10am-noon  Join us at the Eldridge library for a book launching party with Author JILL ESBAUM. (who just happens to be a bookmobile user)  It is sure to be a great time with book signing and Dino-dancing!

That’s all for now!!   See you on the road! Check the website for days and times for your neighborhood.
