As long as it’s just like Bookmobile

My understanding is that the Everett City Council is considering a proposed budget cut for 2013 in which the Bookmobile for seniors and other homebound library patrons will be eliminated if a satisfactory less expensive alternative delivery method can be found.

The Bookmobile offers needed intellectual stimulations to housebound patrons; so if it’s absolutely necessary to cut funding for the Bookmobile, please ensure that the alternative method will be as practical and foolproof in making deliveries as the Bookmobile has been doing.
