Your Very Own Bookmobile

This is not quite an action figure like Nancy Pearl, but it’s still cool, and you can make your own bookmobile. Also related is a relatively new national holiday, which will be in its third iteration: National Bookmobile Day. Which will be held April 13, 2011.  It always falls on the Wednesday of National Library Week. Here is a short video, including still photos of bookmobiles, past and present, produced for the second annual  Bookmobile Day in 2011.


If that isn’t enough Seattle Public Library has its own mobile history and services.

    Jan, thank you for this heart-warming posting. I don’t know if I have told many people, but my first job was City Bookmobile Librarian for the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I drove a blue International Harvester truck much like the one pictured in the video. It was a very interesting first job.

    If I am not mistaken, we have some former book mobile drivers in our LLOPS community.
