THE NEW BOOKMOBILE
A REBUILT 1985 PIAGGIO, WITH CUSTOM SHELVES, HAND PAINTING AND THE CUTEST FACE.
For the art lovers, book nerds, and all those in between looking for a fun activity for their students, guests and visitors - Brooklyn Art Library's new Bookmobile is an all-encompassing creative experience that allows visitors to engage with hundreds of sketchbooks from our collection. We use our Bookmobile as an accessible and creative installation to engage with a local community on a deeper level.
Brooklyn Art Library’s history with a traveling collection of sketchbooks spans the past decade, but our new Bookmobile allows for more flexibility in curation, travel distances and more. Our new bookmobile can fit indoors or stay outside, can be shipped, and even drives up to 35 mph!
We can even cater to an institution’s specific needs - offering a curated set of books to check out, or your school/company/organization can choose its own list of overarching themes and search terms that our sketchbooks are tagged under.
Brooklyn Art Library staff facilitate these real-time activations that engage visitors in a creative, democratic experience where they’ll learn about the cataloging system, how to participate in a global art project and how participants from all over the world have chosen to categorize and reimagine their work.
Visitors also have the option to partake in The Sketchbook Project at a discounted rate, with their sketchbooks become a permanent part of our collection at Brooklyn Art Library too!
