Bookmobile as political statement

On Thursdays, the civic building that had its library ripped out, Metro Hall, hosts Bookmobile 2. I visit as a political statement, even in a snow squall.

It’s not like people don’t use this thing.

In fact, I witnessed someone on the bus actually getting a new library card the other week. She was doing it for the E-books, she said, and was surprised and delighted to see the library “even” lent DVDs.
