My wife and I are going full time soon. We read a lot and wonder if others have found a way to get a nationwide library card or some other way to check out books wherever you are.

Thanks,

Go to a county/city library. I believe that if you take your drivers license along with proof of where you are staying in the county/city, such as a receipt, they will give you a library card.

We are avid readers also but I've never heard of any national library card. Local library system policies vary a lot, but often if you are going to be in an area for awhile they will issue a card using your local address (Rv park). It doesn't hurt to ask.

Cracker Barrel restaurants have an audio book rental program that may be of interest to you. You can rent at one Cracker Barrel and return at another location somewhere along your route. It's $3.99 per item per week.

Welcome Jacksum. Glad you joined our board. Check out the National Rally in Lancaster PA in June. By the way, some campgrounds have videos and books to read while there. Good luck

Welcome aboard Jacksum, here's a list of sites that have books on line, not the same as curling up with a good book, but in a pinch or if the library doesn't have what you had in mind it may fill the gap.

Check with the campgrounds where you're staying.
I don't think it is real common, but at a few places we've stayed with a "clubhouse" they had some book shelves full of paperbacks with signs to exchange "take one leave one'
If you can find enough of them you'd always have a selection but wouldn't need to carry a lot of books with you.
If people start asking about this it might become more widespread.
