From the Stacks: Meet our Bookmobile!

By | News From the Stacks, Weston Family Library | Tags: , , | August 14, 2012 | No comments

This summer, the Weston Family Library wanted to try something new. We thought, “rather than try to bring visitors into the library, why not bring the libraryoutside to the visitors?” This idea took shape in the form of a Bookmobile, as part of Terrific Thursdays at the TBG.

Our Bookmobile includes:

  • Fantastic used gardening books for sale, ranging in price from $1 to $5;
  • Back issues of magazines such as Canadian Gardening, Fine Gardening, Garden Making, AtlanticRhodo, Gardens Central, and more for just 50 cents each;
  • Free Weston Family Library bookmarks;
  • Information about the Weston Family Library, its collections, services, and programs.


You can visit the Bookmobile until August 23 outside the TBG main entrance on Terrific Thursdays. To find out more about Terrific Thursdays, click here.
