    The Bookmobile was put into service in 1938 to serve Licking County's rural areas. 

    The current Licking County Library Bookmobile is the sixth generation and was manufactured in Columbus by Farber Specialty Vehicles. Built on a Freightliner truck chassis, it features a wide-body design allowing for increased shelf capacity and 8 feet of headroom.

    It carries over 5,000 books as well as DVDs, CDs, audiobooks and magazines—all available on a four week checkout period.
