The days are numbered for the <a href=”https://www.cachecounty.org/library/bookmobile.html”>Cache County Bookmobile</a>, which has been distributing books and other commonly used supplies throughout the county for more than 30 years. The Cache County Council voted several months ago to end funding for the Bookmobile, and County Executive Craig Buttars said the <a href=”http://ula.org/”>Utah Library Association</a> is helping with the transition.

“The contract actually ends the end of June,” Buttars said. “Service will be up until the first week in June, and after that, they’re looking to open up drop-off sites at the different libraries in the cities so that if you checked out a book from the Bookmobile and weren’t able to return it, then you’ll be able to take it to the community library that’s closest to you.”

Buttars said the public is encouraged to utilize the <a href=”https://www.cachecounty.org/library/”>Cache County Library</a>, located at 15 N. Main Street in Providence. He expects the change to be an orderly transition.
