Day in the Life: Bookmobile ‘keeps people in touch’

Vanessa Martin became the James V. Brown Library Bookmobile driver about three years ago, and she loves her job.

She spends her days driving throughout Lycoming County, providing a library on wheels to many people who are unable to travel the distance to the brick and mortar building. On the PULSE features a Day in the Life of the bookmobile here.

The bookmobile is a staple of Lycoming County’s learning culture. On July 10, 1939, Miss Frances Kilburn began driving the first Bookmobile on rural county roads. Since then, a variety of vehicles have continued to travel throughout the county, bringing books, music, movies and more to the people in rural areas, schools and care facilities.
