In de Verenigde Staten is de ‘bibliobus’ nog altijd een veelgebruikt middel om het lenen en lezen van boeken toegankelijker te maken. Sinds 2010 wordt er jaarlijks de National Bookmobile Day gevierd. Dit jaar op 11 april (meer). Daarom vandaag aandacht voor dit aardige prentenboek.

When Dorothy was a young girl, she loved books, and she loved people, so she decided that she would become a librarian.

Dorothy’s dearest wish is to be a librarian in a fine brick library just like the one she visited when she was small. But her new home in North Carolina has valleys and streams but no libraries, so Miss Dorothy and her neighbors decide to start a bookmobile. Instead of people coming to a fine brick library, Miss Dorothy can now bring the books to them—at school, on the farm, even once in the middle of a river!

Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile is an inspiring story about the love of books, the power of perseverance, and how a librarian can change people’s lives.

But her search turns into an obsession, as she longs to be reunited with her own collection and memories.”

Audrey Niffenegger’s Night Bookmobile werd in 2008 in de Britse krant The Guardian gepubliceerd in wekelijkse afleveringen en is nu verschenen als stripboek.
