Bookmobile Retirement

Shifting the service focus from bookmobile service to the public schools to general outreach for the underserved


Shifting the service goals from external check-in/check-out services to full programming calendar for adults and children in the Annex


Bookmobile retirement
:

- There will no longer be bookmobile visits to the schools.
- Effective 8/1/2015

- The vehicle is at the end of its life, and there is no money to repair or replace it when it breaks down. 
- The Board felt it would be better to set a clear retirement date, rather than have service abruptly halted mid-year.
- The existing vehicle will be sold, and a mini-van purchased to use for outreach.

Increased efficiency of new online catalog in tandem with the successful implementation of outsourced deliveries result in more efficient handling of collection.

Like all retirements, this one is bittersweet. We are sad to see a community icon leaving the scene but excited to be able to offer such a wealth of other programming to the people of Frankfort.
