Madison County Library System’s new bookmobile will reflect mobile delivery services that will provide for the needs of 21st century patrons. Bookmobiles
provide patrons opportunities to learn, network, and be inspired practically at their doorsteps. Knowledge is power and with the help of donations,
we will bring that knowledge to the patrons of Madison County that need it the most.

“The bookmobile will allow us to reach more patrons, meeting their needs where they are. We are thankful for the generous support and look forward to bringing
the bookmobile back to Madison County.” Tonja Johnson – Director
