Alzheimer’s Community Forum scheduled for Thursday
Sunday Miller sits down with Library Manager Terri Davis to talk about the new Rapid City pop-up library that started this month. They travel to various community sites and set up library materials for consultation, offer librarian reference services, story hours, and take-out and make-ahead kits for children. Currently, the Rapid City Public Library Foundation is working to fund a true “library mobile” vehicle for this venture and will talk about the future vision for this service. It was important for us to launch this mobile library because it brings library services into the community and meets people where they are. It provides access and literacy services to those who would otherwise not have the ability to easily visit the library or even take advantage of the online library. While the term “bookmobile” may evoke nostalgia among many, it goes beyond that concept, offering much more than just “mobile” books. Eventually, when the permanent pop-up library vehicle is purchased, we hope to provide a Wi-Fi hotspot, laptops and tablets for on-site use as well as STEM educational events, to name a few. services that we wish to offer in various places. throughout Pennington County.
