Help the new mobile library hit the road.

The library’s current bookmobile, purchased 15 years ago, has traveled more than 780,000 miles and made over 8,000 stops. As our current bookmobile reaches the end of its vehicular usability, we’re preparing for a new bookmobile to serve as a “mobile library.” The library is in the process of raising funds for the mobile library. Please consider a one-time donation to help make this possible.

The library is currently accepting proposals for the purchase of the new bookmobile. Interested vendors may download the RFP and floor plan or pick up a copy at the library.

Proposals are due Friday, November 13, 2015 by 11:00 AM CST. Deliver (electronic only) proposals to:

Bookmobile Services

The bookmobile serves residents of Henry County, making up to 20 stops all over the area.  The bookmobile has a large collection of materials for all ages, including a variety of books and DVDs.  Specific items may be requested before a scheduled stop time.

Bookmobile stops may be canceled because of holidays, weather conditions, or mechanical difficulties.  The Library’s online calendar will be updated to reflect any changes.

The loan period for books checked out on the bookmobile is 4 weeks (28 days), and for DVDs and magazines, it’s 2 weeks (14 days). Items may be renewed by phone or through the website by signing into your account.
