Mobile Library Van

A mobile library service was first proposed for Inverness County Council in 1970. The mobile service was to replace an outdated and expensive postal service. The initial four phases catered for mobiles to be based at Inverness, Fort William, Kingussie and Portree. Each van would be able to carry between 1500 and 1800 books and would cost around £3000 with £900 for running costs.
