Brooklyn Public Library's Bookmobile
Thanks to funding from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Public Library has four new bookmobiles. The bookmobiles are 29 feet long and 9 ½ feet tall, and houses 6000 books.
During the week, the Bookmobiles serve neighborhoods whose libraries are currently under renovation. On Saturdays they make appearances at community events.
