Jan Collins, Executive Director of Madison County Business League and Foundation, got the ball rolling with the exciting fundraising project for the bookmobile
at Madison County Library System
Madison County Library system’s new bookmobile will reflect mobile delivery services that will provide the needs of 21st century patrons. Bookmobiles
provide patrons, young and old, opportunities to learn, network, and be inspired. Learn about the issues, technologies, and best practices that
are shaping the future without having to have internet access at your home. It is surely a great day to be alive when we as a people can have free
services and resources come practically to our doorsteps. Knowledge is power and with the help of donations, we are going to be able to bring that
knowledge to the patrons of Madison County that need it the most.
