The Bookmobile will be off the road April 18-19.

Rochester Public Library’s amazing BookBike & ArtCart will visit parks from June 4th to August 25th this season bringing Summer Playlist, art projects, books, and DVDs.

RPL’s BookBike program was funded, in part, with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, through a Community Collaboration grant from Southeast Libraries Cooperating (SELCO). RPL’s ArtCart was funded through a grant from the Bush Foundation.

RPL’s BookBike was the 2015 City Category winner for the Local Government Innovation Awards presented by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. This video highlights the program:
