National Bookmobile Day

Created by Yvonne Selander, collection development librarian

Do you remember the Somerset County Bookmobile? There was one. Really and truly! We have photographic evidence from 1957. Bookmobiles have been around for over 100 years, and some counties in New Jersey that serve rural areas still have these mobile libraries on the road. We even have a cozy mystery series centered around a bookmobile in Georgia and another about a bookmobile cat in Michigan.
