Taxi Delivery?

Just had a idea, rather than an expensive bookmobile, why not deliver and pick up books by taxis? A yearly contract with the local cab company to pick-up books and bring them to the library and also deliver books to people might be less expensive than a bookmobile. The cab driver could even return the books at the end of their shifts, just collect them in a clean part of the trunk. Just an idea, not fully-formed.

But doesn't a good bookmobile perform as a small branch library, with shelf browsing and all? Just asking...I'm not quite ready to abandon public-library physical shelf browsing just yet, since it's how I choose 90% of the books I take out.
