Today, we celebrate Bookmobiles. It's our chance to recognize and appreciate their value in bringing education and knowledge to your area, making it much easier to gain access to books of all kinds. The traveling bookmobile may visit your neighborhood. It may make a stop at your local school, or community center. By being mobile, it gets books to people who may not be able to get to the local library. The more rural the community, the greater the need for a travelling library.

 Bookmobiles have been around since at least the 1800s. Bookmobiles helped to bring knowledge and education to America. For example in the 1839, the American School Library, travelled around to American frontier towns, bringing Harper and Brothers books to remote schools.

The arrival of the Internet, made information and online books of all kinds to anyone who has an internet connection. This has caused a decline in the importance of bookmobiles. Has the internet ultimately spelled the end of the bookmobile? That book has yet to be written.

This holiday event is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
