Summer Adventuremobile Service

The library’s Adventuremobile is a mobile kids library. Between May 28 & August 2 the Adventuremobile visits 11 locations each week for kids to check out and return books, music, DVDs and curiosity kits, and explore different STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, art and math) activities. Kids can also join the summer Curiosity Club to earn prizes – just ask for a card on your first visit.

School Year Adventuremobile Service

The library’s Adventuremobile visits participating Shawnee County elementary schools every other week during the school year. Students check out a variety of children’s materials.

How the service works
The Adventuremobile schedule is set up yearly on a first-come, first served basis. The Bookmobile Department then works with each school to set up a schedule for classroom visits during their allocated times. On the day the Adventuremobile visits, students come out with their assigned classroom to return their books and check out 2 items. Teachers can also request library materials to be brought out with the service to supplement their lesson plans.

2018-2019 School Year
The Adventuremobile schedule for this year is already finalized. If you have any questions or concerns about the service, please contact Sandra Hestand, Community Services Supervisor at 785-580-4591 or email
