Life on the bookmobile is a bit different from the other JMRL branches. We all have our ups and downs, our good days and bad, but there are some situations one only encounters out on the road.
As part of my regular schedule, I bring the bookmobile to a number of preschools. The teachers bring the children out to the bus and each one gets to choose a book for the classroom. I make a bit of a fuss over each choice, telling the child what the title is and how much I like ‘that book.’ One morning, as a class left the bookmobile and the teacher reminded everyone to say thank you, one of the little ones hollered back “Thanks, Grandma!” I smiled all day.
