The Bookmobile and Library Express Van are part of our Outreach Services efforts designed to reach district residents who do not have convenient access to or cannot get to our library.
About the Bookmobile:
The Bookmobile is a full-service mobile branch of our library and has been part of the Fountaindale family since 2003. The Bookmobile provides scheduled stops around the community that are open to the public as well as visits to Bolingbrook preschools, schools and senior facilities. Our Outreach staff and Bookmobile participate in many community events throughout the year.
You’re welcome to come aboard the Bookmobile to browse and check out best sellers, magazines, audiobooks, CDs, Playaways and DVDs for children, teens and adults. You can also apply for a library card and request to pick up your holds on the Bookmobile.
During the summer, our popular MOPs Puppet Shows are brought to you live from the Bookmobile! Each 30-minute show is made up of two or three short acts filled with music, interactive elements and fun. Be sure to join us this summer for some hilarious puppetry for the entire family!
About the Library Express Van:
In September 2017, we added a second vehicle to better serve our community. The Library Express Van visits local senior facilities and provides library services to all Bolingbrook middle schools and several area preschools. Unlike the Bookmobile, visitors do not come aboard the Library Express Van; our Outreach staff comes to you. The van is equipped with carts to roll into facilities or schools for visitors to check out materials.
Our friendly Outreach staff also uses the Library Express Van to pick up materials from both off-site book drops and to deliver materials to patrons receiving Home Delivery Service.
See our events calendar for a schedule of Bookmobile and Library Express Van stops.
Bookmobile and Library Express Van stops may be canceled without prior notice in the event of severe weather or mechanical difficulties. Please contact Outreach Services at 630.685.4230 for questions related to service.
