History

According to the terms of the Julius Rosenwald agreement which helped to establish the Charleston County Public Library, library services were to be made available to all residents of Charleston County. At a meeting of the Board of Trustees in May of 1931, it was decided that it was impossible to cover the county by any one method. A "book truck" was considered an essential part of the operation. As a result, a Bookmobile was purchased and began service in October of 1931.

During FY2015, the Bookmobile circulated 25,651 items.
