Sioux Falls Public Library Bookmobile
The museum recently received several scrapbooks belonging to longtime librarians Pauline Striemer and Justine Watson. These scrapbooks have pictures and memorabilia from the Sioux Falls Public Library’s history. One scrapbook revealed details about a new service being offered through the library, the Bookmobile. Bids for the new Bookmobile were taken in 1950 and the first vehicle was bought for $7,500. The Sioux Falls Public Library’s Bookmobile service began on October 1, 1951. Pauline Striemer was hired to be the first bookmobile librarian.
