Bookmobile – Truncated Schedule Today 3/9

BAPL News No Comments »

The Bookmobile is having its generator worked on early this afternoon.  As of this moment the first stop at the Bethlehem Township Municipal Building is definitely cancelled.  We’ll update this post later on in case it is necessary to cancel additional stops.  We’re hoping the work won’t take much more than an hour.

UPDATE:  As of 2:40 pm the Bookmobile is good-to-go and en route to the Hanover Township Community Center!  The rest of today’s schedule will run as normal.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
