Butler County bookmobile back and newly wrapped

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Butler County bookmobile is back in action after a long break due to Covid.

The van is newly wrapped and restocked, looking shinier than ever before. 

Butler County librarian and bookmobile driver Tonia Price said she loves delivering books to their Christian schools, home schooled kids and elders who can’t get out and about.

Price said that because of Covid, she’s gotten a lot of messages lately requesting the library on wheels to stop by.

Even when the bookmobile became inactive over the pandemic, Price delivered and picked up the books to the community in her own car so people wouldn’t feel uncomfortable walking inside the small van. 

She went this extra mile because of how much her community loves the mobile library. 

Price said, “There’s a daycare that I’ve been going to, and the kids love to get on and check out their books. They know exactly what they want to check out, usually. They all love it.”
