The Blue Earth County Library once again facilitated a community event where residents of Mankato could get hands-on with the kind of big, heavy machinery that keeps their city ticking; this year's "City on the Go" was held at Sibley Park, located at 900 Mound Ave., according to the City of Mankato, Minnesota Government. The event included an up-close look at a firetruck, police vehicle, City bus, and a loader.

As per the City of Mankato, Minnesota Government, community members were offered the opportunity to explore the vehicles that serve them, to not only satisfy a bit of curiosity about these enormous and complex machines but to also bridge the gap between the public and the municipal workers who operate them every day, ensuring a finely-tuned orchestration of safety, transport, and maintenance at the heart of their town.
