Want a copy of the latest best seller? Need to catch up on some leisure reading and DVD viewing? Running short on time and can't make it to your local public library branch? We've got a solution!

This spring, the Pima County Public Library Bookmobile will be at the UA campus the first Tuesday of the month -- Feb. 2, March 2, April 6 and May 4 -- from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Partnering with your University Libraries, the PCPL Bookmobile is on campus to meet your general interest and leisure reading needs.

The PCPL Bookmobile is a full-service public library on wheels where visitors can:

• Apply for a PCPL library card
• Checkout thousands of books, magazines, DVDs, and books-on CD
• Return items checked out from any other PCPL branch
• Request items from other PCPL branch libraries for pick-up on the Bookmobile

PCPL books checked out of the bookmobile are checked out for a whole month (instead of the 21 days for books checked out from a branch library) and can be returned the next month during the bookmobile's visit or be renewed online through your library account at www.library.pima.gov, returned to the PCPL Bookmobile or returned to a PCPL library branch. The nearest one to the University of Arizona is Himmel Park Library, 1035 N. Treat Ave., 85716, 594-5305.
