The Bookmobile now stops at Birch Bay
The sleek 33-foot brown and yellow Whatcom County Library System (WCLS) bookmobile will expand its Wednesday afternoon route to include Birch Bay in the next couple of weeks.
Library staff will park the library on wheels in the Bay Center Market’s parking lot from 4 to 7 p.m. beginning September 20 and continuing through December 27.
Those who want to make sure a particular movie, CD, book, or material in a given subject is waiting on the Bookmobile can visit the library catalog at www.wcls.org. Request your selection and choose “Bookmobile” as the pick-up location. If you don’t have an internet connection at home, you can call a local library branch or make requests during your Bookmobile visit.
The first three months are a trial period, but the stop will be continued next year if enough patrons use it, library officials said.
