You can also read more at Bookmobile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, from which I borrowed the following photo, captioned: "The Perambulating Library of 1859 in Warrington, England." The paragraph accompanying the picture below explains: "The Warrington Perambulating Library, set up in 1858, was another early British mobile library. This horse-drawn van was operated by the Warrington Mechanics' Institute, which aimed to increase the lending of its books to enthusiastic local patrons." [Source: Orton, Ian (1980).

I know some participants in this NOOK forum - and some authors, such as Stephen King - are bookmobile fans, because we've previously discussed those topics in multiple blog threads, discussion threads, and polls (see https://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/search.jspa?q=bookmobile). If you'd like to share your two cents about bookmobile, this is a great day to post your comments either here, at one of the threads or polls linked above, or in a new post/discussion/poll of your own.
