Bookmobile: Brief History and Services

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 home delivery.

The Bookmobile offers:

  • Library card sign-up
  • Books, for children and adults, including Spanish language materials
  • Large Print materials
  • Popular magazines
  • Popular DVDs
  • Audiobooks
  • eBooks
  • Storytimes

If you have questions, want to request specific materials, or if your organization or community is interested in hosting the Bookmobile, please call us at (419) 352-5104 ext. 221 or send an email to Bookmobile@wcdpl.org.

The Bookmobile visits areas within the library's legal service district, shown in the downloadable "Service District map" pdf attached at the bottom of the screen.
