WCDPL has provided Bookmobile service to Wood County since 1951. The current Bookmobile was purchased through funds provided by a State Library of Ohio grant and privately raised funds. This vehicle runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) an abundant, low-cost, green alternative to gasoline or diesel.
The Bookmobile is a full-service mobile library, providing a wide range of materials and services to local communities, including outreach services to area agencies, organizations, and institutions and homebound individuals.
The Bookmobile offers:
- library card sign-up
- books, for children and adults, including Spanish language materials
- Large Print materials
- popular magazines
- popular DVDs
- audio books
- and more!
