Here’s to a happy, healthy 2014 in Jersey City!
Today is the perfect day for curling up with a book, so let’s talk about one of the greatest inventions: the bookmobile.
I don’t know how I’ve lived here for years and never taken advantage of this big, blue bus that travels the city in hopes of making it easier for citizens to get their literary on. The Bookmobile is literally a mobile library.
Two weeks ago, I climbed aboard and was surprised at how much could fit so well into a relatively small space. There were shelves upon shelves of books in every genre, two computers for public use and there’s even a checkout desk once you’ve gathered your materials.
I’ve been to every branch of the library, but this vehicular book heaven parks a block away from my home. (Check schedule: Blue Route or Red Route.)
