It Takes a Village …

2017-04-bookmobile-outside-icplRecently our new Bookmobile rolled into town and we quickly learned it takes a “Village” of dedicated City staff members to introduce a new service to our community. Every day we see the amazing work of our City staff. Whether it’s a friendly greeting, someone clearing trash, an Equipment Division staff member completing a safety inspection, a Transit/Fire/Police staff member talking to children about safety, or many other equally important examples, there’s a lot of work everyday by City staff that contributes to the great community we live in.

The Bookmobile represents a tremendous service expansion for the Library, and it would not be possible without the behind-the-scenes work of many Library staff in addition to the work of staff in many City departments. As we look forward to the start of Bookmobile services on June 1, it’s a great time to say thank you to everyone who made the Bookmobile possible.

Three cheers to the staff members of these City departments who contributed to bringing the Bookmobile to Iowa City: Accounting, City Council, City Manager’s Office, Communications, Engineering, Equipment, Information Technology, Neighborhood Outreach, Parks and Recreation, Police, Purchasing, Refuse, Streets, Transportation Services (including Parking & Transit), and others I missed (I’m sorry!). It definitely takes a Village, and our Village is awesome!
