Salinas Paletero Cart Offers Food for Thought


” In the age of the internet, libraries are in a constant state of reinvention: looking for ways to stay relevant and connect with their communities. In Salinas the public library is trying a new twist on the old bookmobile. It’s a Paletero push cart. Normally they’re kid magnets with their crunchy snacks and namesake paletas (the Spanish word for popsicles). The library’s version seems to be no exception, even though the only thing its peddling is food for thought.”
