A WPA bookmobile in South Dakota

Above: A WPA-operated bookmobile in South Dakota, ca. 1935-1943. On the back of the bookmobile, it reads, "The bookmobile system reaches many rural communities and citizens. Constant interchange of books between the central library and the branches and stations make any book available to any reader in the region. It serves 23 small communities. Travels about 900 miles over the circuit monthly." Photo courtesy of the National Archives.
