Bookmobiles in History

I've posted before about some unusual bookmobiles, like the bicycle book mobile and the tank bookmobile. Well, the Saint Paul Public Library has a page dedicated to bookmobiles from the past: Bookmobile History and Photo Album. Including the one below. It's groovy to see the evolution of these, and to see how eager the kids were to find a new treasure. In fact, this may have to become a new tag theme at - bookmobiles. Gotta luv 'em.

Thanks to Julie Fortenberry at children's illustration for turning me onto this!

Thanks so much for sharing this picture. I love the whole idea of bookmobiles, and wish there were more bringing books to neighborhood kids.
