Let’s Use Our Mighty Voices for Bookmobiles

Let's Bring Back Oakland Bookmobile

While rewriting the section in my new guide…the section on how to use words (tags) to find information on the World Wide Web, and, using “library advocacy” as an example, I came upon this blog post (about creating National Bookmobile Day during National Library Week 2010):  http://olos.ala.org/columns/?p=17
So, I submitted the following comment to that blog:

Mr. Swendroswki,

Your post regarding the proposal from ALA Subcommittee on Bookmobiles and the approval from ALA Public Awareness Committee to designate April 14, 2010 as National Bookmobile Day brings me joy.  I will share this news with fellow authors and “Save the Libraries” advocates.

In Oakland, CA, we have lost our bookmobile (and other library resources) when City officials passed the budget last year 2009.  Eliminating the Bookmobile has created a huge loss for library patrons, especially kids and seniors.  I invite all Bookmobile lovers/patrons to help by sharing their opinions on http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com.  Please click on” YOUR Bookmobile Story” and share yours. Or email your story to save-the-libraries@live.com.

Thank you, ALA Subcommittee on Bookmobiles and ALA Public Awareness Committee!  I will celebrate all Bookmobiles during National Library Week 2010.
