Our beloved big green truck must be phased out due to new CA air quality regulations.

We have received notice that our beloved big green truck must be phased out due to new CA air quality regulations. Good bookmobiles are scarce out there on the used market and new ones are extremely expensive. So we're going to build our own :)

Please help us build a replacement bookmobile so we can continue our important work spreading literacy and love of reading!

Bringing JOY with our free booksFor the past 10 years, our award-winning non-profit program has been boosting educational outcomes for local children, helping low-income families read together, and offering seniors opportunities for intellectual and social stimulation. We have grown this outreach to serve 25,000 people per year and demand for our bookmobile visits keeps rising. Our site partners want more but it will all come to a sudden halt unless we get a new vehicle ready by the end of the year. Click here to donate now!


The Plan
 
Fortunately, we have already tracked down a great base model box truck we can convert.

It has a semi-translucent roof for daytime illumination, a suitable patron entrance, and really low mileage on a workhorse V10 engine -- should last another quarter million miles without breaking a sweat! Best of all, we won't be giving up any shelf space compared to our original bookmobile. In fact, our new custom interior design will let us offer an even bigger variety of high-quality free books to the public.
 
Please consider making a generous donation toward our goal! All the money will stay local as we have Sonoma County vendors lined up to do the conversion work: hardware modifications, electric & lighting, carpet, and of course the shelves that will carry thousands of great books of all types and levels to readers out there who are challenged for access to other resources. Your donation will only be processed if we reach our ENTIRE GOAL, so you can be assured the project will be completed and our new bookmobile will hit the road.

But we only have 30 days to reach our total!

DEADLINE November 15!
