  • SirsiDynix Outfits Bookmobile for
    Hurricane-Ravaged Hancock County Library System
  • HUNTSVILLE, Ala.December 15, 2005SirsiDynix
    announced today a cooperative effort with
    libraries in Maryland to donate a fully equipped
    bookmobile to Hancock County Library System, a
    Mississippi library hard-hit by Hurricane
    Katrina. The donated bookmobile will serve as a
    temporary replacement for Hancock Countys
    Pearlington branch, which served both an
    elementary school and the general public. To
    outfit the bookmobile technologically and
    integrate it with the library systems existing
    software, SirsiDynix donated hardware and
    software. The bookmobile will open its doors on
    Dec. 19 with a celebratory ceremony at its new
    Pearlington location.
  • It also reminds us that bookmobiles are keeping
    up with the times too.

Gertie
  • They tried to interest the Smithsonian in taking
    Gertie, a 1962 Gerstenslager that looks like a
    cross between a bus and milk truck and is thought
    to be one of the nation's oldest bookmobiles.
  • "They very gently declined," said Elizabeth
    Stearns, a spokeswoman for the Waukegan Public
    Library.
  • Then came a new idea, with a heroic twist
    sending Gertie to Jefferson Parish, La., to serve
    readers in an area where Hurricane Katrina
    damaged 16 libraries.
