National Bookmobile Day is April 10, 2019
National Bookmobile Day celebrates our nation's bookmobiles and the dedicated library professionals who provide this valuable and essential service to their communities every day. Each year National Bookmobile Day is celebrated on the Wednesday of National Library Week. In 2019, National Bookmobile Day will be Wednesday, April 10. National Bookmobile Day is an opportunity for bookmobiles to make their support known through thanking bookmobile staff, writing a letter or e-mail to their libraries, or voicing their support to community leaders.
