Got Reserves? Pick Them Up on a Bookmobile!

Bookmobiles are a huge convenience to those savvy patrons wishing to save on time and gas money. After all, it’s quick and easy to stop by your neighborhood Bookmobile location and pick up that hot new book or DVD that’s been on your mind.

But, let’s face it – there may be times when an item that you desire is not on the Bookmobile. In those instances, you can actually request to have the item sent to you at your particular Bookmobile stop!

How?

It’s easy! Just follow the steps required for placing an item on hold, and choose “Send it on a Bookmobile” for the delivery type. You can select your preferred Bookmobile stop from the drop-down menu and then confirm your reservation request.

You will be notified by email or telephone (depending on your account information) when the item is available for pick-up. We will hold the item at that Bookmobile stop for two weeks to allow you plenty of time to pick it up.

Please note that due to the large quantity of Bookmobile holds that we are limited to transporting only the holds on the Bookmobiles for the stops we are visiting that particular day (i.e. you can only pick up holds for the Wednesday Prince of Peace stop on Wednesdays – those holds will NOT be on the Bookmobiles on other days).

Questions?  Feel free to call us at 580-4400 or use the online chat feature on our website.

  • Hello

    Are bookmobiles running this week and next week during the catalog change?

  • Michelle Stottlemire

    Good question! Bookmobiles WILL be running this week though Saturday, May 19th. Bookmobiles will NOT be running from May 21st though May 28th in order to perform scheduled maintenance and in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Bookmobiles (and the Adventuremobile!) will be back on schedule beginning May 29th.

    I forgot to mention that during the time that the Bookmobiles are not running their regular schedule any holds tagged for Bookmobile service that become available can be found in the holds pick-up room at the main library. Once the Bookmobiles are back on schedule the holds will return to their regularly scheduled stops. Because of the delay, any Bookmobile holds affected by the delay will be available for pick-up for an extra week.
