learning opportunities for preschoolers, parents,
and professionals in our community.
Collection The Big Blue Bus carries a variety of items for children, ages birth to kindergarten, including board books, book & CD sets, music CDs, books on DVD, and picture books.
Computers One staff computer allows access to the library's circulation system for the checking in and out of materials. The staff is also able to search the Rochester Hills Public Library's catalog of materials and Research Databases.
Purchase Made possible by a generous gift of the Doris and Charles Edie Estate, the library took delivery of the used bookmobile in November of 2011. During December 2011 and January 2012, the vehicle was re-fitted and the library's name was added.
