NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The military and Berkeley County are signing an agreement that will allow the county’s bookmobile to visit the Charleston Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek.

It’s one of dozens of cost-saving agreements between the military and local communities nationwide during the past three years.

Officials from the county and Joint Base Charleston are signing the agreement on Wednesday. It allows the bookmobile to serve those living at the Weapons Station when the station’s library is closed.

Joint Base Charleston commander Col. Robert Lyman says it’s another way government agencies can work together in a time of tight budgets.

Since 2013, the Air Force Community Partnership program has signed 158 agreements with local communities that have saved a total of almost $50 million.
