Working in partnership with a variety of organizations, the Bookmobile ensures that the resources of the Saint Paul Public Library are accessible to those who face barriers in using the library’s fixed facilities.
The 45-to-50 sites the Bookmobile visits each month include multi-unit housing communities, organizations that promote literacy, and groups working with underserved neighborhoods.
Whenever possible, Bookmobile customers are provided with the same level of service one would find at a fixed library facility.
To be considered for on-going Bookmobile service:
Sites seeking on-going Bookmobile service should send a written request to the library.
If the number of customers served at a site is not sufficient over time, a change in service or cessation of service will be considered.
Instead of regular visits from the Bookmobile, sites that have parking or other constraints may elect to receive quarterly a collection of library materials for use by older and/or disabled adults.
The Bookmobile participates in special events that are held at its 50+ ongoing community partner sites.
