Praise For Library on Wheels: Mary Lemist Titcomb and America's First Bookmobile

"Readers will be inspired by Titcomb’s dedication to her work and indifference to naysayers. The book’s attractive layout resembles a scrapbook, where archival photos, reproductions of letters, and other historic ephemera grace most pages. Glenn’s accessible writing provides just the right amount of historical context to highlight the extraordinary nature of Titcomb’s work and unquestionably establishes her as a true American pioneer."

— Booklist

"Attractively designed to resemble a scrapbook, the engaging narrative is complemented with archival photographs, reproductions of correspondence, and other artifacts. An ennobling portrait of a pioneer who took the library out of its walls and to the public "

— Kirkus Reviews
