Summer Fun with the Bookmobile!

The ICPL Bookmobile is once again on the road with a full Bookmobile route. Staff are ready for a summer of Bookmobile fun running from Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, August 2021.

The summer schedule operates Monday through Friday to support neighborhoods and locations all throughout Iowa City as well as contracting communities. The Bookmobile offers the ability to pick up holds, browse and borrow from the Bookmobile bins, return materials, register for library cards, and participate in the Summer Reading Program. On-board browsing is also available with up to five visitors at a given time for 5 minute browsing sessions. At this time, masks are required when on board the Bookmobile.

ICPL Bookmobile staff look forward to seeing visitors, connecting people with library materials, and awarding summer reading prizes. Staff always appreciate the opportunity to hear what community members are reading, share information about library services, or simply say hello! As the Bookmobile has returned to the road, the words of encouragement and support have been greatly appreciated. Kind words from visitors are almost as satisfying to staff as the feeling of handing over a brand new library card
