For Remote Communities In Scotland's Outer Hebrides, Mobile Libraries Are A Lifeline

Mobile libraries provide a crucial point of engagement for remote communities. In Scotland, the country’s mobile library service has provided residents of its Western Isles with access to books, Gaelic culture, and a chance to socialize within a very rural setting since the 1950s. The service becomes even more crucial as the population on the islands dwindles, and funding for libraries and other community centers grows scarcer.
