Please read carefully for instructions and important updated location, date, and time changes.

  • All stops will only be 30 minutes.
  • No one is allowed on the bookmobile at this time.
  • This will be a pick up stop for returns only at this time.  Please bring a list of books you would like us to take out to you in October.  You may also use our online catalog to place holds. You may view the online catalog here: Please feel welcome to call or email if you need your login information and how-to.
  • Masks will be required at all times and 6ft social distancing is required.
  • Please DO NOT come to the bookmobile if you are sick in any way.
  • One person at a time will be allowed to come to the table that is set up outside the bookmobile – you will pick up your books and drop off any returns you may have for us.  RETURNS – All returns must be placed in a bag for pickup. 
  • For those of you who have not yet submitted your census survey  we will have a laptop set up and I (Liana) will assist in helping you submit your census information – PLEASE complete your census - It is the basis for distributing seats in the House of Representatives and in various state legislatures. It is also used to determine the distribution of nearly $900 billion for federally funded programs, which are apportioned based on an area's population, income, age, and other factors.  It’s also what funds the bookmobiles!
  • If a route is delayed or cancelled due to weather or safety concerns, we will notify you as soon as possible via an email, phone call or Facebook.
  • For those stops we are unable to get to, we are happy to assist with eBooks and books by mail – please reach out to me for assistance.
