Library on Wheels: Mary Lemist Titcomb and America's First Bookmobile

by Sharlee Glenn Author

This is the story of the first bookmobile and how one revolutionary librarian decided if you can't bring people to the books, bring the books to the people. Perfect for readers ages 8-12, this book tells the story of Mary Titcomb and her determination that everyone should have access to the library, especially the rural residents like farmers and their families. This one librarian added features we take for granted today, like book-deposit stations throughout her county, a children's room in the library, and the most revolutionary idea of all -- a horse-drawn book wagon!
