We recently welcomed the arrival of our new Bookmobile! This new vehicle will replace our current Bookmobile, which has been part of the Fountaindale family since 2003. Our new Bookmobile—a full-service, tech-friendly mobile branch of our library—will soon provide scheduled stops around the community, attend community events and visit Bolingbrook preschools, schools and senior facilities.

You will have the opportunity to browse and check out bestsellers, magazines, audiobooks, CDs, Playaways and DVDs for children, teens and adults, as well as apply for a library card and request to pick up your holds on the Bookmobile.

In addition to a robust collection of almost 3,500 items, our new Bookmobile boasts bench seats, Wi-Fi, a wheelchair lift, a high-resolution monitor installed on a drop-down ceiling mount and a 20-foot awning over an exterior 75-inch TV.

We will host a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, June 7 at 5 p.m., but be on the lookout for more information about a fun-filled event later this summer for the entire community to celebrate our new Bookmobile with fun activities, prizes and crafts!

Our Outreach Services team has already started transitioning this amazing vehicle for use. We look forward to bringing it to a stop near you soon! For more information about our community visits and our Bookmobile’s participation in events, please visit our events calendar or contact Outreach Services at 630.685.4230 or outreach@fountaindale.org.
