I got off the bookmobile not three hours ago. For the three and a half hours before being deposited near our house, I was in an amazing world. It was heartwarming to see kids from babies to teens (and their parents) braving the rain that started coming down hard as we began our route. Between shelving as many newly returned books as possible to make them available for the next contingent of eager readers, directing visitors to “their” sections, fielding questions and requests, and learning the routine, the time flew by–and suddenly there were no more stops. All that remained was to reshelve returnees so the bookmobile will once again be ready to roll. I can’t wait to get back on board.
