happy national librarian’s day.



in front of the first saint paul public library bookmobile, 1917.

“i’m of a fearsome mind to throw my arms around

every living librarian who crosses my path,

on behalf of the souls they never knew they saved.”

  1. I love this, Beth! Wow, such an incredible and old photograph to feature. I only lived in one house growing up where the bookmobile came, in Sandusky, Ohio. This was when I had the farm family babysitter. We loved getting on the van and just smelling the books and choosing only 3. My Mom’s rule! 🙂
