Fall Into Fun on the BookmobileCan’t get to the library? We are where you are! Our Bookmobile—a full-service mobile branch of our library—provides scheduled stops around the community at convenient locations around town, such as Target, IKEA and Best Buy. On the Bookmobile, you can:

  • Sign up for a library card
  • Check out popular materials for all ages, including regular and large print books, audiobooks, movies, video games, Memory Care Kits, Wi-Fi Hotspots and Rokus for free!
  • Speak with an Outreach staff member to get reading recommendations, reference services and more
  • Return and renew materials
  • Pick up your holds

Every month we provide a different program on the Bookmobile, so make sure to join us this fall for fun activities and cool prizes for the entire family.

September: Coffee and a Craft
National Coffee Day is September 29, and you can celebrate with us all month long! If you enjoy coffee as much as we do, stop by the Bookmobile during September for a cup of coffee to brew at home and a fun take-it make-it craft, while supplies last. And if you’re in the crafting mood, check out Creativebug, our eResources with lots of cool crafting ideas.

October: Let’s Smile!
It’s a beautiful, wonderful, awesome time for Positive Attitude Month in October! We’re smiling on the Bookmobile and looking forward to spreading our positive energy your way. We have uplifting books and movies to check out and a giveaway that’ll be sure to have you seeing the glass half full!

November: International Games Month
Games are a great way to bring families and communities together and International Games Month is a time to celebrate all types of games! Did you know you can check out Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox games on the Bookmobile? We can also help you find books to sharpen your Minecraft skills or learn to play chess. Join us on the Bookmobile in November for some gaming fun, and don’t forget to enter our drawing to win some awesome board games!
