Bookmobiles of yesteryear

A book lover for as long as I can remember, I have a passion for libraries of all kinds. One treasured memory from my childhood was the excitement of walking into the bookmobile when it visited the street where I lived during my childhood in Switzerland.

It was with much interest that I viewed the New York Public Library's small web "slide show" of Historic Images of New York Public Library Bookmobiles. I never knew bookmobiles went back that far! The images, going all the way back to the 1920's, are a nostalgic look back at people looking for entertainment in the days before television and the internet.

Here's to the good old days! I would love to see a bookmobile arriving on my street today...

    I would like to write to you, but your email address did not work for me.

    I am trying to learn Hrvatski and I would like to visit Legrad soon, especially the cemetery where my family members are buried.

    Thank-you again for your kind comments about 100 Years in America.
