Article published in the Orlando Evening Star on September 8, 1949 announcing that the contract for the interior of the Bookmobile had been awarded to Rivers Body Factory of Jacksonville, distributors for Wayne Works of Richmond, Indiana and Price Collins Motors, Inc. of Orlando, local dealers for Studebaker cars and trucks.

"The all steel Wayne Bus body is bonderized, a rust proofing process necessary in this climate, Oak rubber covered bookshelves, custom built desks and fittings and many refinements are among the selling points."
