Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. built a new 34 Mobile Library for the County of Riverside. Today, that vehicle was featured in The Press-Enterprise. The colorful vehicle travels about 300 miles each week to service the Cabazon, Perris, Wildomar, Meadowbrook, Aguanga, Quail Valley, Menifee and Corona areas. The bookmobile first appeared in the Cabazon Community Center in early July, when the local public library was closed.
Planning and building for a new library can take up to a year to finalize. In the meantime, the bookmobile will be traveling to Cabazon on Tuesday’s at 10:00AM to 12:00PM and on Saturday’s from 1:00PM to 3:00PM to service the area. The bookmobile holds about 2,000 books which includes all types of genres that are sure to catch the eye of many community readers.
Nonetheless, the vehicle is equipped with two computers and a wheelchair lift. It is said that several people utilize the computers to search for employment opportunities. Carlos Mora and Tom Newman are recognized as the Library Assistants and when possible, they host story time under the vehicle’s exterior awning. The Library system hopes to increase and establish awareness of their services in the Cabazon area. Riverside County Library Administrator, Barbara Howison, stated “the number of visitors usually increases when people start seeing the bookmobile on a regular basis and realize its appearance is not a one-time thing”.
