Arlington Public Library announces the arrival of The Truck, a traveling library designed to hold hundreds of books, games, crafts and DVDs for all ages and interests.
You can meet The Truck at Central Library on Saturday, March 14, from 2 until 4 p.m., during the Winter Reading Hot Chocolate Party.
The Truck will meet Arlingtonians at community centers, schools, local businesses and parks — from Columbia Heights West to Rosslyn, from Arlingwood to Fairlington, and every neighborhood in between. Patrons will be able to check out and return books on-site, sign up for library cards, take a class or enjoy the free public Wi-Fi.
“We can’t wait to travel the roads and connect with Arlingtonians where they are,” said Diane Kresh, Library Director.
The Truck will offer plenty of opportunities to engage with the Library and reach beyond lending books. Arlingtonians can:
- Get reading recommendations from a Librarian
- Learn about upcoming Library and County events and programs
- Register for a new Library card and check out books
- Hear a storytime and learn a new skill
- Use the free public Wi-Fi
The Truck is funded by Arlington County government with support of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.
