Bookmobile Schedule
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 information.

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.
