Scheduled stops at Seneca St. and Highbridge Ct. will be cancelled due to the poor parking situation at both locations.

The bookmobile will be at Walgreens and Blair Rd today as scheduled.  If St. Ursula’s in Fountain Hill remains inaccessible due to snow and ice narrowing the parking lot entrance, the bookmobile will lay anchor at the Bottom Dollar on Broadway instead.

Any items due today will be extended until the next scheduled visit.
