Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile

$16.99Price
Perfect for children who enjoy the Story House trolley.  When Dorothy was a young girl, she loved books, and she loved people, so she decided that she would become a librarian.  Dorothy's dearest wish is to be a librarian in a fine brick library just like the one she visited when she was small. But her new home in North Carolina has valleys and streams but no libraries, so Miss Dorothy and her neighbors decide to start a bookmobile. Instead of people coming to a fine brick library, Miss Dorothy can now bring the books to them at school, on the farm, even once in the middle of a river!  Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile is an inspiring story about the love of books, the power of perseverance, and how a librarian can change people's lives.  From the Story House: How could we not love a book about a bookmobile?  This one, though, really stands on its own merits.  A true story, it captures how one woman fulfilled her dream even as circumstances challenged her.
