The library owns and operates two Bookmobiles manufactured by Farber Specialty Vehicles, Columbus, OH.
The Community Bookmobile has a variety of Music CDs, DVDs, Videos, Books on CD and Books on Tape. The collection includes adult and juvenile titles, best-selling fiction, large print items, gentle reads, periodicals and paperbacks. The Community Bookmobile stops at 32 locations throughout Springfield and Clark County. Major stops are located in shopping centers: Park Layne, Northridge, Northland Plaza, Walmart on Tuttle Road and in South Vienna at 21 West Main Street (formerly Shoemaker's).
The Children's Bookmobile is stocked with juvenile materials and visits Head Starts, daycare centers and schools.
Items borrowed from other library locations (except framed art & discovery packs) can be returned to the Bookmobile for your convenience. Please remember to bring your library card to the Bookmobile as checkout may not fully automated.
You may sign-up for a new library card on the Bookmobile. Children need a parent or guardian to sign the application. All applicants must present a photo ID and proof of current address.
It's easy to start using the Community Bookmobile. Patrons can choose a regular stop to visit and the information will be saved to your account. Place reserves online and choose Bookmobile as the pickup library.
Reserves for stops are carried for only one day, then returned to the department for the next visit.
