This summer the Bookmobile has been participating in PA Forward Star Library program. This program is an initiative designed by the Pennsylvania Library Association to create a future where all Pennsylvania public, special, academic and school libraries unite in a shared vision of helping residents succeed as citizens, parents, students, employers, employees and consumers. The program recognizes five literacy categories: basic, information, health, financial, and civic and social.
Basic Literacy is the ability to read, write, spell, listen, and speak. The Bookmobile supports Basic Literacy through its wide selection of books and the community events which we attend. Most recently we have participated in Library night at PNC Field. Coming up in September, we will participating in the annual Touch A Truck event. Our shelves will be stocked with plenty of books about trucks and buses of all kinds!
Throughout the year the Bookmobile supports Basic Literacy by visiting schools, day cares, senior centers, and community stops.
