National Bookmobile Day (Wednesday, April 16, 2014) celebrates our nation’s bookmobiles and the dedicated library professionals who provide this valuable and essential service to their communities every day.
It is an opportunity for bookmobiles fans to make their support known—through thanking bookmobile staff, writing a letter or e-mail to their libraries, or voicing their support to community leaders. Have you hugged your bookmobile today?
North Carolina has a long history of bookmobiles serving communities from the coast to the mountains. This image of the Iredell County Library Moroney bookmobile is from the Transforming the Tar Heel State: The Legacy of Public Libraries in North Carolina collection part of the North Carolina Digital Collections.
