Bookmobile Write-Up on Flickr This is the web address of my Flickr picture and write-up about our Cecil County Public Library, MD, Bookmobile. This baby is my home away from home. I drive it to licensed family daycare homes, large daycare centers, facilities for physcially/mentally challenged young people/adults, and special events around our county.

This multi-purpose bookmobile travels weekday mornings to visit preschool children with our in-home outreach story time program, "This Way To Books." The program opens the exciting world of reading and brings stories to life via flannel boards, music, puppetry, finger plays, and interactive dramatic role-play.

Afterward, book selection by children is highlighted on the bookmobile. Day care providers choose books, audios, videos, CD's, DVD's, child care books, and other materials to enrich their center's programs.

The afternoon hours finds our vehicle at after-school programs. Anywhere p.m. programs abound for elementary and middle school children, "Books After The Bell," will ring the chimes of literacy with its onsite promotion of book distribution for "teens and 'tweens!"

We can be found at Elementary Schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, Scout Troops, Middle Schools, Summer Camps, Private Schools, Community Centers, Neighborhood Associations, the YMCA, and events such as the Cecil County Fair, adding our community presence wherever possible!
