The mobile library is seen here parked outside the Co-op on the corner of Main Street east and Upham Terrace. A mobile Library service began in Palmerston North 22 May 1967, in a 20 foot caravan towed by a Bedford van. It was first put into service to gauge the public’s response for such a service, and its initial route covered Hokowhitu, Manawatu Street, West End, Highbury, Milson and Terrace End. The caravan served as the Mobile Library until replaced by a 9 metre bus in 1973.
