Rapides Parish Library Gets New Book Mobile

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--The Rapides Parish Library has a new toy--a book mobile.  

The newly purchased book mobile made its first run last week and News Channel 5 caught up with it in Alexandria Wednesday.  The library has worked for the last three years to find funding to replace an older book mobile.  
"This one is beneficial in that it has a wheelchair lift so we do a lot of nursing home visits and homebound visits. this will allow our patrons to come on board that otherwise couldn't come," Adult Outreach Manager Londa Price said.

Customers can browse the book mobile collection aboard the vehicle or request specific items from the book mobile staff.
