Bookmobile History

During the Depression, Works Projects Administration funds made bookmobile service possible.

In the 1950's, the bookmobile was known as the "Traveling Branch" and was quite popular among its users.

During the 60's, the bookmobile served as a mobile neighboorhood branch while library locations were being built or remodeled.


The bookmobile today is a state-of-the-art facility that offers most of the services expected at a branch library.

In 2001, the bookmobile underwent a refurbishment to reflect the new look of the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative.
