Wordless Wednesday: The Book Mobile!

Lake Macquarie Shire mobile library, 20 October 1950, by Sam Hood

Such a nostalgic photo! I love being able to see the books on the shelves.

We still have a book mobile in our library system despite the crazy cost of gas. How about where you live?

  2. Ah, love it! We don't have that but we have a service for shut-ins. Great photo!

  3. I love it! I don't know if there's a bookmobile around here or not.

  4. That is so very awesome. I love it!

  5. Every week, I waited for the bookmobile and would check out the limit: three books. I'd run home, read one entire book during the two hours the bookmobile was there, run back and "exchange" it for another book. That way, I got to read four books a week. I remember books like Abe Lincoln, Pioneer Boy in a series about famous people. I think John Paul Jones was also in that series, making me want to grow up to be a sailor. (Then I found out that girls couldn't be sailors in 1949 and the early 1950s when I was reading those books, but that's a different story.)
