Picture of the Week: Morganton Public Library’s first bookmobile in Drexel Fair procession

Huppmobile belonging to William McVey, husband of library director Miltanna Rowe McVey (library director from 1927-1963), appeared in a Drexel Fair parade.  Posters advertise that the library gives free book service to all Burke County citizens.  By 1944 there were 190 stations, 152 schools and 31 home stations.  These were services by a second bookmobile that was a wartime ambulance donated by Burke County Public Schools.
