Have you ever seen a library on wheels? The Tolleson City Library now has a library on wheels. Book Mobile clerk, Chip, told me about the Library on Wheels.
Chip is an ASU graduate and loves to read. His dream was to work in a library. Chip got the job with a one day application. Chip has been with the Tolleson City Library almost a year.
A typical day for Chip is driving the Library on Wheels and answering questions that patrons may have. “When the pandemic hit, we closed the library and had curbside pickup,” says Chip. Also during the pandemic, they were losing the groups they had. According to Chip, during and after the pandemic, they were still offering curbside pickup.
The Tolleson Library on Wheels came about to reach kids who could not go to the library. The Library on Wheels currently services Tolleson Elementary Schools, Tolleson High School, Tolleson Senior Center, and the Tolleson Recreation Center.
