A moving library is coming to Colerain Township Park.The Quarryville Library has arranged to have the Library System of Lancaster County's bookmobile visit the park on Buttermilk Lane off of Route 472 in Kirkwood the second Wednesday of each month from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

About a half-dozen readers turned out when the bookmobile made its first stop on Jan. 9.

Ed Miller, Special Services Coordinator for the Library System, is the driver for the bookmobile. His next stop at the park will be Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Frances Vita, who was recently hired as Quarryville Library's new director, said adding the new stop came about after she was doing storytime programs at Oak Bottom Village in Quarryville.

"I started to realize there wasn't a great need there because I noticed the kids we were serving were coming to the library," she said. "The programs were drawing them in."

Vita began talking to Miller about it and they decided to start having the bookmobile stop at the park.

"There's a larger need at the Colerain stop," said Vita.

The bookmobile has seating and offers best sellers, non-fiction, paperbacks, books on tape, large print books and Spanish materials. Books, videos, DVDs and CDs may be reserved online. Borrowed books can be returned to any public library in Lancaster County as well as to the bookmobile.
