How cute is this? How cool is this? I wonder how many books are in there? I want that job!! As a kid I looked forward every Thursday afternoon when the bookmobile arrived in my neighborhood shopping plaza at 3:30. I devoured books like other kids ate candy. Biographies, history, mysteries, adventure, arts, music, photography, sailing, architecture, travel, and more. I guess some things never change. Can’t wait to go see this itty bitty library on wheels!

A vintage bookmobile is road tripping all over America — and of course it’s spending the winter leg of its trip in Florida. The concept from the Brooklyn Art Library is an amalgam of creativity. Shelved inside a rebuilt 1985 Piaggio are hundreds of sketchbooks from the museum’s archives.

The minds behind the Bookmobile consider it an “installation to engage with local communities on a deeper level. More than just an opportunity to browse sketches, visitors will learn about the complex cataloging system and how to mobilize a global project.

The vintage museum on wheels will make several pitstops in the Tampa Bay region.

From December 18 through December 20 it will be posted up outside Intermezzo at 1111 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. The Bookmobile will also be in attendance at the St. Pete Saturday Morning Market on December 15 and December 22.

Want to participate in this project? You can order your own sketchbook and send it back filled with the images and ideas in your head. Your work will then travel with the Bookmobile as an ever growing, ever changing exchange of ideas.

Learn more about the project on the Sketchbook website. You can also get a bit more on the background of the Brooklyn Art Museum by visiting their website. There’s plenty of flights from TPA to La Guardia, JFK and Newark International if you’re ever itching to experience Brooklyn.

Thank you, Joan Walker, the Pinellas International Council Cultural Awareness Committee Chair, for putting together a wonderful Oktoberfest evening at the Imagine Museum followed by authentic German food and drink at the Hofbrauhaus, both in downtown St Petersburg, Florida. The Imagine Museum gave us a private tour while explaining the history of studio glass making in the USA. Absolutely stunning pieces of glass throughout with info on each artist. Thank you to all that attended. A great time was had by all! Let’s do this again.
