The Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County is a unique program that aims to give away books for free to kids, adults and seniors all around Sonoma County. The goal is to help anyone from the low-income to access challenged have access to books in an effort to increase literacy.

The United Way of the Wine Country is sponsoring the third year of the Bookmobile and has organized multiple donation points around the county for people to drop off books and help re-stock the free book supply. Both Exchange Bank and the Hansel Auto Group will feature bins at all of their locations for donation of new and gently used books with books for toddlers, early readers and teens in both English and Spanish being highest in demand.
