Bookmobile Service will begin again on Tuesday, July 7th

In the spring of 2016 the library purchased a Sprinter Van to put into service as a bookmobile. This service is still in development and currently makes visits at 22 private facilities as well as 24 public stops throughout the county. The bookmobile carries regular print books, large print books, CDs, and DVDs for all ages. Requests for specific materials can be placed by calling 740-373-1057 x606 or emailing at least 7 days before the next scheduled visit, to give materials time to arrive. If you have questions, would like your facility or community to be considered as a regular stop for the bookmobile, or would like the bookmobile at a special event, please call 740-373-1057 x606.
