Mobile Libraries, Cultivating a Community. So, where will the collection be housed? The agency has decided to
take a unique approach to providing a library for the community. They have created an “online mobile library”
that will allow women to check out free books online and have their books delivered to them on special “mobile
days.” The library will also have established “book stations” where their collection will be accessible via host
community agencies. Tarsha Semakula, the agency's executive director, states...We are looking to partner with
local agencies to house our mobile collection on selected dates. We like the idea of delivering the books to the
women who use our library, as this gives us an opportunity to share the books with the women via our book drop visits.
