Justin R. Burton, Vice President and Business Relationship Manager for the bank said, “We are proud to support the Mooresville Public Library’s Homebound Book Delivery program. Thank you for all you do to promote literacy, education, technology, community and culture.”

Book delivery will start with residents of the area health care facilities Mooresville Manor, Accordius Health, and Curlin Commons, with plans to expand to residential home-bound patrons soon. Volunteers will deliver and pick up
5-10 books per member monthly.
Library Director Marian Lytle said, “Mooresville Public Library is honored to work with the Friends of the Library and Wells Fargo to put Books on Wheels on the road. Reading materials will be delivered in the colorful sturdy bags provided by the Wells Fargo Grant. This is a perfect example of how volunteers and business come together to serve local citizens and support the Library’s vision of being ‘Your place to connect, discover and grow.’ “
