Bookmobile inspires both young and old

By JOE SHOUSE • Progress Correspondent

This year, National Bookmobile Day was celebrated on Wednesday, April 16. Recently, I decided to make a couple of stops along one of their routes and quickly discovered it was a happening place for all ages. Actually, those who take advantage of the Paulding County Carnegie Library’s Bookmobile when it comes to their community range in age from preschool to just over 100 years old.

My first stop was in Latty. On any given Tuesday, there will be 10-15 patrons who will show up. The Latty folks who come out are consistent, according to Bookmobile manager Kathy Heffley.
