It doesn’t get much better than this for portable librarians. On Monday, June 25th, the Smith Branch of the New Orleans Public Library cut the ribbon to return library service to its neighborhood. The library, located at 6301 Canal Blvd., New Orleans, LA, is completely destroyed. Parked on the curb, is our districts’ 15 year old bookmobile. It’s had a makeover and is serving a second life in New Orleans. The engine was rebuilt, the paint was touched up, and the staff from the Smith Branch did some interior decorating. After wading through a ton of red tape, the bookmobile is now in the caring hands of the New Orleans Public Library. That is something to celebrate.
