Another Bookmobile to be Taken off the Road -- This Time in Indiana

PCPL to end Bookmobile, start delivery.  Greencastle Banner-Delivery, 2/10/2015)
The Bookmobile was originally created in hopes of bringing a portion of the Putnam County Public Library's collection to patrons in remote areas. However, over the years library staff has found the Bookmobile to not be as effective as it would like, with patron usage declining.

The bookmobile will continue to provide 3-day-a-week service (Tuesday through Thursday) through the end of this month.
