(JKPL) — Joeten-Kiyu Public Library’s Bookmobile is on the move! As part of the pre-anniversary festivities, Team JKPL hosted a photo-op at the JKPL parking lot for the much anticipated and newly retrofitted JKPL Bookmobile and Technology Mobile Express on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021.

After months of retrofitting, the Technology Mobile Express along with the newly acquired JKPL Bookmobile have made their way home to Susupe, Saipan! Local dignitaries and JKPL staff attended the photo-op Friday, Nov. 19, 2021 with Gov. Ralph DLG Torres in attendance, witnessing a very special early Christmas present just in time for the JKPL’s 30th anniversary celebration.

Commonwealth Library Council Treasurer Charles V. Cepeda, Sen. Vinnie Sablan, Speaker Edmund S. Villagomez, Reps. Angel Demapan, Leepan Guerrero and Roy Ada were also in attendance that day.

Governor Torres said, “Thank you Library Director Erlinda C. Naputi for your strong leadership and for the hard work and contribution each and every one of you have done in ensuring that our community receives the best programs and services especially for our most underserved. Thank you, and happy holidays!”

A formal unveiling for the newly retrofitted Bookmobile and Technology Mobile Express will be held in December. Stay tuned, CNMI, for more exciting updates and information!
