    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.
