Bookmobile turns 50!

ROCHESTER, Minn. – A staple in southern Minnesota is celebrating a pretty big milestone.

On Friday, a birthday party was held for the Rochester Public Library’s Bookmobile, which is turning 50! This truck goes all over the county to rural areas where people might not be able to access the library. In fact, we are told it made over 2,000 stops last year and drove more than 8,000 miles. Officials of course had cupcakes during the party and tours of the bus.

We are told another party will happen Monday when it’s Bookmobile Day in the city of Rochester.
