New Mobile Library Bus launched during Library Week
A new Mobile Library bus was launched at the start of South African Library Week. A replacement for the oldest mobile bus, the new bus will travel the routes of those stops in the Southern Suburbs. The new bus has features not found in the other buses in the library's current fleet, including an air conditioned interior, a cover that will provide shelter to users of the bus as they queue to access the bus and also enables access to physically challenged users. The latter feature is made possible by a lift at the back of the bus that will hoist users in wheelchairs to the entrance level of the bus, thereby allowing access to the bus. The bus is colourfully designed and is branded with library staff and community members highlighting the variety of services available from their library. The bus was officially launched by the Mayoral Committe member for Community Services and Special Projects, Alderman Belinda Walker, at the Battswood Primary School on Monday, 18 March 2013.
