Come away with me, Lucille
In my merry bookmobile (Oldsmobile)
Down the road of life we'll fly
Automobubbling, you and I
I woke up this morning and this pretty bus was out front of my house. It's the Greensboro Public Library's bookmobile, called the Reading Railroad! w00t! It's a wonderful bus, posh inside with lots of books and things to read and do for the children. There's even a satellite dish on top (currently retracted) for high-tech fun.
These bookmobiles were around when I was a child, but I have never seen them look more beautiful.
So, for the price of a war "toy", how many of these babies could you buy? Lots. :worried: I won't belabor the point, but we know where all the money is going. This wonderful "magic bus" may become a thing of the past one day. Many less fortunate areas have given them up already.
If your local library has a "buy a book" program, it's a nice way to think of someone without buying them some usual "thing". Every Christmas, part of our gift giving involves donations to the library. The library buys needed books and puts a memorial sticker inside the front cover acknowledging the recipient of the gift. Cool hey! 😎
Here are three pics of the merry bookmobile. Each is clickable for greater detail. Select "all sizes" after landing on the flickr page. Pretty! Pretty, magic bus! :up:
