Welcome to the Bookmobile!

Libraries are for everyone banner showing Library Assistant Kaitlin assisting a patron in a wheelchair.

The Bookmobile makes over sixty-five stops a month all over Lancaster County, bringing books, DVDs, audiobooks, STEM activity kits, museum passes, and the occasional ukulele to populations that might not have the means to visit a brick-and-mortar library.

The Bookmobile makes monthly stops at retirement homes, nursing facilities, low-income housing communities, over thirty Head Start classrooms, and Amish communities. We have a uniquely designed vehicle that allows them a lot of flexibility, making sure they bring the right materials to their stops.

Our shelves are actually carts on wheels, and they are interchangeable. On ‘Head Start days’, we load up with our picture books carts, both fiction and nonfiction. On ‘retirement home days’, it’s large print and the latest from Lisa Scottoline or James Patterson, along with audiobooks and DVDs for our patrons whose eyesight or hearing don’t allow for traditional reading. For days where we are going to see the Amish, it’s the inspirational fiction cart and our special stash of Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy books. The Bookmobile is also able to roll these carts into lobbies, classrooms, or activity rooms for accommodating stops. This has helped us better serve patrons with limited mobility.

For most of our patrons, the Bookmobile is their only opportunity to have access to new books and movies. Though we already have over sixty-five stops, we are always looking to expand service. Please contact us for more information.
