Mobile Libraries in Japan

移動図書館

For small, rural towns in Japan with no public library, residents rely on a mobile library service provided by the nearest city with a public library.

Matsushiro mobile library

In Matsushiro, just outside Nagano, the mobile library calls once a week on Saturdays, from the main library in Nagano city.

Dear sirs, we are going to make an exhibition about book interventions in public spaces as a part of Moscow municipal program "Books in parks" and book-fair "Nonfiction". It'll be interesting for moscovites to know about such bus-libraries. Can you give any ips whom to ask about high-res photos and more information?
