Extremely Early Bookmobile


I wish I could read the name of the city. This has got to be one of the earliest bookmobiles ever, right? It's so nice to see the children are more interested in checking out books than sliding down the slide.
UPDATE: It's circa 1917 somewhere in Minnesota. Found here.

Wow! What a great picture! I wish people today realized the importance of reading!

I think there are still lots of readers out there. It's always very busy at the three libraries I frequent.

How sweet is this? I love the idea of back in the day a mobile library would pull up and a lot of eager children would appear. What a great photograph.

Karen,

I love finding wonderful vintage photos of children visiting the bookmobile. I only lived in one town that had one and my brother and I absolutely loved it.
