Happy Library Week

In honor of library week, I'd like to direct your attention to a *very* cool thing. If you've read my blog for very long, you know I have a thing for bookmobiles. So, here is your chance to own your very own Parnassus on Wheels:

Ebay item: 270551067368. And believe me, I've shopped for horse-drawn vehicles in the course of my day job (museum curator), and this one is right on the money so to speak, judging by the photos. It would make a killer artifact for the currently forming American Writers Museum! Although, they've said they will not be an archiving institution (enough others do this, and do it well), they did not say if the new museum would be a collecting institution.

You should get a 1950s bookmobile for LT to visit trade shows and festivals, then we could have this for Legacy Libraries!

Very cool! Now all I need is a piece of old paper to go with it!

I have no idea where I would put this, but I MUST HAVE IT! That is so cool.
