Chicopee Set To Put Bookmobile On The Streets
A brand new bookmobile will be traveling through a western Massachusetts city this summer.
The city of Chicopee unveiled a new $75,000 bookmobile and announced a two-week rolling schedule of stops starting June 29th.
Library director Nancy Contois said it is Chicopee’s first bookmobile, and currently the only one in western Massachusetts. Scheduled stops include parks, apartment complexes, and the farmers’ market.
"This gives us the opportunity to bring our library services out to where our public is," she said.
The bookmobile is stocked with more than 500 books and DVDs. It has Wi-Fi, so people can download e-books.
