FROM IDS REPORTS

A green machine will be parked on Kirkwood Avenue on Friday, and it will be full of books.

Monroe County Public Library will unveil its new energy efficient Bookmobile to the public Friday, with free tours of the vehicle from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The new Bookmobile features a hybrid generator, a roof solar panel and on-site cellular Internet. 

Popular best-selling books, adult, young adult and children’s books, CDs, DVDs, videocassettes, magazines and audio books will be available for rental from the vehicle.

Any materials not available on the Bookmobile will be available for delivery from the main library to one of its 28 stops throughout Indiana.

Monroe County Public Library patrons are also able to return materials rented from the main library or from the Ellettsville branch to the Bookmobile.

Monroe County Public Library has been serving patrons with its Bookmobile since 1929.

The library has upgraded the vehicle multiple times since its first appearance.

For more information about the Monroe County Public Library and its Bookmobile program, call 812-349-3050 or visit the library’s website at monroe.lib.in.us.
