(ABC 6 News) -It's National Bookmobile day, and on Wednesday the Rochester Public Library Bookmobile was out celebrating.
The bookmobile travels to different communities throughout the area.

Before the pandemic, you could go onto the truck to browse and check out books.

But now, you need to do your book reservations online.
"We are probably the busiest in terms of circulation in the state and a really good portion of comparison with the country, but you really can't compare a bookmobile to a bookmobile," says Margie Brumm, Rochester Public Library.

The mobile went from 75 stops to about eight stops a week now. Once in the morning and another stop in the afternoon for scheduled neighborhoods.
