This is the 1960 Scott County Library System bookmobile.

In June 1947, Edna Spies founded the Scott County Bookmobile to bring library service to rural children, and in 1950, the Scott County bookmobile organization became the Scott County Library System.

The bookmobile remains an important element of our outreach services and partners with elementary schools and brings library service to the residents of Scott County.
