Library Book Mobile

 

The Bookmobile is a mini-library on wheels making weekly visits to various remote communities located throughout Saipan to provide valuable and free public library services and I.C.T. (Information, Communications, Technology) Access.

The Bookmobile is not a replacement for traditional library services, but instead is offered as a valuable alternative outreach service, that provides assistance to the community.
