"Books With Wheels"

Books come in various shapes and sizes
Some are well read, some win prizes
There are books with pictures
Other have none
Cooks have their books
Gardeners have some
Travelers read Guide Books for places to explore
Children have bedtime books and always ask for "one more"
But our favorite books are those with wheels
That roll to us on The Bookmobile.

- Marjorie W.

Books can transport you to far away places,
Introduce you to adventures and thrilling new faces.
But, how to glean from their wonderful pages
The thrills and excitement of all the ages?
It’s not always possible to venture afar
To reach that library’s far away star.
Aha! – that’s where a wonderful invention,
Clever and needed I’d like to mention.
It’s the Bookmobile which comes to you
Wherever you are and whatever you do!
So, please take advantage of this wonderful treasure.
Hours of enjoyment await your pleasure!
