Bookmobile, Book-Hauler and Cybermobile Services

Think of the Bookmobile as a mini-library on wheels. Traversing Lucas County with bi-weekly and monthly visits to community centers, the Bookmobile carries a wide assortment of materials, including:

  • Fiction and non-fiction books for children and adults
  • Large print books
  • Current magazines
  • Books-on-tape and CD
  • DVDs

Bookmobile stops include public housing sites, nursing homes, senior housing complexes and shopping centers.

The Book Hauler is a unique vehicle designed to transport a large quantity and variety of materials into senior residential and health care facilities. This allows patrons to browse the carts at their leisure, selecting the materials that appeal to them. The Book Hauler also delivers requested materials to patrons’ rooms.

The Cybermobile (Virtual Tour) is a state-of-the art mobile technology center, complete with high-speed broadband Internet access. This “classroom on wheels” is a first for TLCPL and a new concept in the delivery of Library Outreach services, providing access to technology and programs to high-need neighborhoods. Programs offered will include:

  • Basic Computer Use
  • Basic Internet
  • Intermediate Internet
  • E-mail
  • Job Resources

Our Outreach Services staff is available to talk to your group about our many unique services. Call us at Outreach Services at  419.259.5350 for additional information.
