Our bookmobile lady

Fifty years ago on July 18, the South St Paul Public Library put their first bookmobile into service.  Behind the desk, at the back of the bus, sat my grandmother, Hazel Brossoit.  She held that post for many years with many different drivers.  All over town she was known as the "bookmobile lady".  Our closest stop was in the Concordia Lutheran Church parking lot off 5th Ave and Douglas Street.  We would go there after Girls Scouts, during the school year or ride our bikes there in the summertime.  With our aunts working the main library and our grandmother holding court in the bookmobile, it was no surprise that we were all avid readers!
