Celebrate your favorite bookmobile or cheer for one to drive your way during tomorrow's celebration. At the American Library Association's National Bookmobile Day webpage, you can find printable, foldable bookmobiles that students can construct. Or try a different foldable bookmobile courtesy of illustrator Bob Staake.
To give students ideas for their miniature bookmobiles, introduce them to some of the world's most interesting bookmobiles and the fearless, beloved librarians who care for them. Start by reading Jeanette Winter's book Biblioburro: A True Story from Colombia to find out about Luis Soriano and his donkey library that shared books in rural Colombia.
Discover Alaska's Kusco Book Express, a floating library that brings books to families along the Kuscokwim River.
