These books are made for …

walking? I used to read walking home from school, with the occasional bump into a lamp-post. This mobile library is parked outside York art gallery. It's a great service for outlying communities and in York, at least, has survived the cuts.


  1. Ha ha, I never tried that as a kid. We have one mobile library in Haninge, very popular it is.

  2. (I think we have a bus here too, but I have to check that out.)
    Anyway, I think it is a great idea, and I also like the design and colors on the bus!
    I have never walked and read books, only newspapers and magazines....
    But I nearly always carry a book in my shoulder bag!:)
    - Have a nice weekend!

  3. I love the local library and thank goodness it has been saved. When I was studying for my O.U degree I often took a book to read whilst walking the dog, he never minded.

  4. I never heard about mobile libraries. Great idea. I could be a driver)
