OXFORD — Children are once again able to visit the Oxford Hills Bookmobile during school vacation. This will be the fourth summer the bookmobile brings books and crafts to residential communities and child-care programs throughout the area.

Geared to children of all ages, the bookmobile travels to various locations in the Oxford Hills on a regular schedule throughout the summer. Books can be checked out, volunteers read aloud to children and youngsters can take part in crafts.
This year’s theme is creativity, with books and crafts selected by library staff.
The free program began June 23 and continues through July 30. It operates during the day Tuesday through Thursday and on Wednesday evening. During the evening hours, the bookmobile will visit residential communities such as Cottage Street and Alpine Park apartments as well as the Oxford Pines regency community.
The bookmobile also visits children’s learning and day-care centers from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The program is funded by the Maine Reads program, the Norway-Paris Kiwanis and SAD 17.
Volunteers are needed to help the bookmobile staff. For more information about the program, call the library at 743-5309.
