It is time to hit the books.

A bevy of young Brooklynites got the chance to check out the Brooklyn Public Library’s redesigned Bookmobile when the roving library made a stop to bring books to the campers at the Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program in Prospect Heights on Thursday.

Seeing the Bookmobile on the block is a sight rivalled by few other thrills of childhood, according to the illustrator who helped re-decorate the library on wheels.

“I think the Bookmobile arriving should be as exciting as the neighborhood ice cream truck,” said illustrator Adam J. Kurtz, optimistically. “My collaboration for the BPL Bookmobile is bright and fun, with literary-inspired art that I hope stirs the same innate excitement. You know there’s gonna be something good inside.”

Even to the adult book-lover that might seem like a stretch (ice cream is ice cream), but at least one kid told a photographer for this paper that he had to receive a pinch or two to convince himself the mobile library was not a dream.

Stay tuned to for even more Bookmobile coverage!
