MONTCLAIR, NJ-- The Montclair Public Library will be purchasing enough books to fill two of the twelves shelves of the electric bookmobile, made possible by a $1000 donation from the Montclair Rotary.
“We appreciate the generosity of the Montclair Rotary Club and its charitable foundation,” said Peter Coyl. “As a civic group that has been concerned with increasing literacy and education, we are delighted they have chosen to help support this new service.”
The mobile library service is an effort to expand the Library's reach to users, especially children and seniors. The bookmobile will visit community events, festivals, parks, senior housing, preschools, train stations, and local business districts.
The vehicle, known as a tuk-tuk, was manufactured in Colorado and was funded by the Montclair Public Library Foundation.
The acquisition of the eTuk is a continuation of the library's efforts to remove barriers to access and serve its users through a lens of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
