DOTHAN, AL---For more than 20 years, Elizabeth Stewart has been known as the Bookmobile Librarian.

"I absolutely love working on the bookmobile."

All throughout the year, she travels around Houston County on Mondays and Wednesdays.

"We stop at homes, community locations like stores sometimes, churches," said Stewart.

The Bookmobile stops at each designated spot anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.

"We usually start off and have our first stop around 9 O'clock, said Stewart, and our last stop around 2:30."

Stewart says since printed schedules are provided, everyone nearby anticipates the stop.

"We see families, home schooled families, retired citizens that some have a problem getting to the library."

The books are rotated out often, there's a kids section an adult section and sometimes special requests can be made,

"If we don't have it on our book mobile i will do my best to get it for them and take it to them on our return trip," said Stewart.

The book mobile comes back once every four weeks, which, gives you about a month to read what you've checked out.

The book mobile does no* carry DVDs.
To check out a book all you need is a library card.

To request a Bookmobile stop at your home or in your area contact Dothan's public library.
