Notes
No matter the weather or the road conditions, the bookmobile successfully provided library services to ten sites, extending library services to all sectors of the city. Each Oshawa district was visited bi-monthly. Children who could not visit the main library benefitted from this unique travelling library service.

Over the course of 34 years, bookmobile services met the needs of a rapidly growing community, bringing thousands of books to Oshawa’s communities where there were no library branches.
