Library Book Van

Reed Tarwater, Library Board Member and Kiwanis Member with David Gray and Mike Schull.
Hancock County Public Director David Gray and Outreach Manager Mike Schull talked to Greenfield Kiwanis about the new book van and other activities at the Library.  
The Library traded in their 13 year old bookmobile for a smaller book van that is more efficient. The van has removable carts that can be taken inside buildings being visited so that patrons do not have to visit the van.  The carts can also be taken into the library for restocking.   DVD’s and books from the book van are on a 3 week checkout.  Items from the van are fine free.
The van’s schedule is available at http://hcplibrary.org/programs/tmschedule.htm .  Additional stops can be added by contacting by Schull at 462 – 5141.
