Bookmobile Stops • Bookmobile Schedule

Our bookmobiles make scheduled stops in Montgomery County municipalities that do not have their own public library locations. We provide library outreach and library programming to the residents of townships and boroughs that are not in the service area of a “bricks and mortar” public libraries. We are a full service mobile library branch for those residents.

The bookmobiles also serve as additional library branches for all the public libraries in the Montgomery County Library District. Anyone with a library card from a Montgomery County public library is welcome to use our bookmobile services.
