Bookmobile History at Kitsap Regional Library
In 1947 a naming contest was held for the Library’s first bookmobile. Children throughout the county chose the name Molly, and a naming tradition was established that has lasted nearly 70 years.
Molly began operations in May 1947, making nine runs every two weeks. In 1954, a second bookmobile, named Little Chief, was purchased for community runs and Molly was reserved for service to schools. In 1982, Molly and Little Chief were retired and the Library purchased a bright yellow van which was named Buttercup. In 2008, Buttercup was replaced by the 28-foot custom built bookmobile named Violet. These days Violet runs on two-week schedule visiting 20 different locations throughout Kitsap County. This bookmobile was paid for entirely by donations.
