Book Bus Fall Tour

Take a break from leaf-peeping this fall and hop aboard the Book Bus.

The library’s Outreach Department is hitting the roads of Campbell County this September and October for their first-ever Book Bus Fall Tour.

Enjoy fall-themed crafts, activities, bookmarks and giveaways. Don’t forget to pick out a free book to keep from the Book Bus. While the bus primarily stocks books for children, there is a selection available for adults and teens as well.
