Bookmobile Updates

Join us as we partner with local truck body manufacturer, TriVan, to create a custom bookmobile for our patrons in Birch Bay, Wickersham, Glenhaven and Lake Samish. We will post updates and photos showing the progress from month to month until we finally reveal our new bookmobile and drive it off the lot.
