Schedule under construction
This is a generic schedule. Most weeks, the
bookmobile will follow this schedule, but please keep in mind that holidays,
inclement weather, workshop attendance, mechanical problems, etc. will
necessitate occasional changes. You are welcome to
call the libraries (248-4812 or 337-3422) for updated
Also, if you have never been a bookmobile
customer but find it difficult to come to one of the libraries,
contact Libby at 248-4812 to request regular bookmobile service.
We're sorry, but the bookmobile cannot
transport persons from place to place.
Bell County had the second
bookmobile in the state, arriving in August 1949.
The Bell County bookmobile was given by Mrs. Mary Belknap Gray
in memory of her grandfather Wm. B. Belknap. It was sponsored
by the Pineville Public Library and the Bell County Board of
Education. Contributions were also provided by the Black Star
Coal Co. in Harlan so the bookmobile crossed into Harlan Co. to
serve Black Star's mining community.
Mrs. Charles King was the
librarian. She provided service 3 days each week making twice
monthly visits to 42 schools, shut-ins and other adults.
