Bookmobile

Philosophy

WCPL’s Bookmobile seeks to promote early literacy and instill the love of reading by offering the experience of a simulated public library visit to communities in Wake County. The Bookmobile supports WCPL’s Every Family Ready to Achieve Initiative, which helps families achieve personal success through library programs and services. 

Goals

  • To instill the love of reading and appreciation of public libraries in communities that benefit most from the additional resource provided by the Bookmobile. 
  •  To connect young children and their caregivers to additional programs and services at their local library through a simulated public library visit. 

Where we are today

WCPL’s Bookmobile recently underwent an extensive renovation and refurbishment to ensure the durability and life of the vehicle. Updates include wi-fi, a new PA and sound system, new flooring and cabinetry, a retractable external awning, and a beautiful custom-designed wrap.  

Bookmobile services are currently impacted by COVID-19. Right now, we are planning the best—and safest—way to open and provide library service to the community and keep our customers and staff safe. As part of our reopening plan, we look forward to getting back on the road to offer services to the public with their health and safety in mind.
