A request for another bookmobile was made last night by members of the Public Library Advisory Council at an informal meeting of the Ann Arbor Board of Education.
It was pointed out that the greatest concern of the council is to provide full library service within the entire school district.
With the exception of Dixboro, all stops of the present bookmobile are within the city limits, a council member said.
Homer Chance, director of libraries, said that the addition of a larger bookmobile would permit extension of service to more areas, longer stops and night stops.
The Ann Arbor Kiwanis Club donated the bookmobile currently in use.
Board members will consider the possibility of purchasing a second bookmobile before adopting a budget for next year, President John H. Hollowell said.
The present bookmobile has an approximate circulation of 50,000. It is estimated that a second bookmobile of the desired size would cost $16,000.
The council also recommended that the Board of Education adopt a program leading to the establishment of branch libraries with the suggested timetable of the first branch in three years, the second in five years, and the third in seven years.
