Bookmobile Schedule Changes

The library is in your neighborhood with two Bookmobiles serving the community six days a week. October 1 we start a new schedule, so you can start using the Bookmobile when it’s convenient for you.

You can look forward to expanded hours to give you more access to the books, movies, audiobooks and other materials you like. See the new Bookmobile schedule on page 15 to find a stop near your home, work or school.

The Bookmobiles will be open 10 more hours each week as a result of the change, which was spurred by customer demand for more Bookmobile service. We also spread out the service so it’s more equitable for underserved areas of the community, said Thad Hartman, Community Outreach Manager.

“We gave extra hours to busier stops like Villa West, California Crossing and Dillons at 29th and Urish,” Hartman said “Customers who use the Bookmobile at Hunter’s Ridge have wanted a weekend stop for a while, and now we’ll be there each Saturday.”

We tried to minimize change as much as possible. You’ll notice that in most cases the hours of a stop stayed the same but the day changed. None of the locations have been eliminated.
