Have you ever wondered what life would be like without the Glendale Public Library? What about life without any books at all?! In her book, , Margriet Ruurs gives us a very interesting look at some traveling libraries that make books available for communites around the world. Some of these communities are so remote is that the books have to go to them. Here in Glendale, we have our own traveling library, the bookmobile! But in other places, people use bikes, boats, and buses to transport books. Sometimes, even camels or donkeys travel carrying large bundles of books. Read this book to find out more about these special mobile libraries.

This book is best for readers in grades 4 through 8 and is a true story so if you need to do a book report on a non-fiction book, this one is for you!
