Brooklyn Public Library's Bookmobile
   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.
