Good news! But now you have me wondering...whatever happened to the City's bookmobile? I swear I remember seeing one circa 20 years ago or so...

Ah, wait until the weekend and all will be revealed ! (Though your recollection is correct, they lasted a lot longer that I had thought - I figured tehy were a relic of the 70s).
