Bookmobiles in America : An Illustrated History
Bookmobiles in America delves into the topic of that unique invention of the library world, the bookmobile. They have been around as long as the automobile itself, even longer when including those powered by horses. Indeed, just about every vehicle used to transport people has been used to move knowledge as well. Hence, this work deals not only with trucks, but also jeeps, trains, horse-drawn wagons, boats, and even an airplane or two. Librarian Orty Ortwein will show you the surprisingly fascinating history of this overlooked topic.
