The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners held a ribbon cutting ceremony today, November 9, at the Harriet Elizabeth Brown Community Center in Prince Frederick to celebrate Calvert Library’s new Bookmobile.
Calvert Library, with capital project support from Calvert County Government and additional funding from the Friends of Calvert Library, initiated the purchase of a 26-foot mobile library, or “Bookmobile,” in fiscal year 2019. Due to the labor and supply challenges of the pandemic, the Bookmobile was delivered in October 2021.
The Bookmobile expands the way citizens access library books and content, especially those who are homebound or don’t have reliable transportation to visit a physical library location. The Bookmobile will visit childcare centers, senior centers and make neighborhood stops to bring the library directly to the community.
