VIDEO: The Daniel Boone Regional Library has replaced its 24-year-old bookmobile with the new Bookmobile Jr. This "miniature library" is designed to introduce youth in low-income neighborhoods to the public library and encourage reading. Children and parents can come to Douglass Park to read and check out books from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. almost every Friday during the summer.
