5 Great Books about Bookmobiles from Book Riot.com. I'm not sure if CBRL has any of these books but we do have 2 awesome bookmobiles. And off the top of my head one book which is not on the list: The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger.
The first bookmobile! A Maryland librarian recognized that libraries were responsible for making books both available and accessible. The Maryland Book Wagon served until 1910 when it was hit by a train; no one was injured. Photo taken circa 1905.
