How many of you are old enough to remember the Bookmobile? These “Libraries on Wheels” were as much of a treat for us, as the ice cream truck playing it’s “Monkey Chased The Weasel” music that graced our neighborhood every weekend. Before BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com and many other digital book distributors, these mobile libraries fed our literary appetites by offering a variety of books from different genres! Do you have a favorite bookmobile memory that you’d like to share?
Although operating these vehicles are not as cost-effective as they used to be, they are still nonetheless utilized, modernized and remain a valuable asset to the community of readers who still love and appreciate their services.
