People of the Traveling Book

By LAURIE DROSSIN

Municipality of Jerusalem

JERUSALEM — Al-
though Jerusalem prides it-
self on its 20 public lib-
raries, there are always new
neighborhoods and outlying
districts where permanent
libraries have not yet been
built. - A rather ingenious
and highly successful solu-
tion has been found to this
problem. Three mobile lib-
raries — or "bibliobuses" as
they are popularly
nicknamed — regularly
stop in Jewish and Arab
neighborhoods and nearby
villages according to a strict
schecule.
Each bibliobus has its
own assigned route, collec-
tion of books, fling system
and staff— a driver and two
librarians.
Attached to the public li-
brary department of the
municipal Department of
Culture, the bibliobuses
were individually contrib-
uted by donors to the
Jerusalem Foundation.
Large, flat-bed vans were
converted into libraries
simply by lining their inside
walls with formica shelves.
A combination desk/
check-out counter is behind
the passenger seat which
swivels around, thus, per-
mitting one librarian to
man the counter while the
second, in the rear of the li-
brary, assists in the selec-
tion of books and reshelves
the returned books.
There are two Hebrew
libraries and one Arabic
serving the different areas
of the city.
There is, however, an in-
teresting sociological dif-
ference between East and

West Jerusalem regarding
the bibliobuses. In East
Jerusalem only the children
visit and use the Arabic
mobile library and, thus, it
is exclusively a children's
library. Consequently, the
library is parked next to
schools and the children are
taken from class to visit it
during the school year. Dur-
ing vacations and the sum-
mer, the bibliobus still
faithfully adheres to its
schedule and the children,
accustomed to expect it,
gather at their schools to
await its arrival.
In West Jerusalem the
appearance of the bibliobus _
is a neighborhood event.
Mothers with strollers sur-
rounded by older children
crowd around the library.
Grandparents can be seen
accompanying their
grandchildren. And fathers
helping their youngsters to
make a wise selection. The
adults also take advantage
of the libraries which fre-
quently. park alongside
shopping centers for the
sake of convenience.
At each stop the bibliobus
remains about an hour,
until everyone has made his
or her selection. Depending
upon the weather, any-
where from 30-60 people
visit the libraries at each of
their 75 stops although dur-
ing the school year an even
greater number of children
use their mobil library
when it stops near their
school
While more libraries are,
being built in Jerusalem
all the time, the city's rapid
and constant growth keeps
up the demand for the serv-
ices of the bibliobuses.

404-z,

May the coming year bring good health, happiness and
prosperity to all our family & friends.
