MCPL @Bookmobile

We are thrilled with the feedback from the community regarding our bookmobile service. With our bookmobile, we are able to serve homebound patrons, nursing homes, schools, homeschools, daycares, as well as assisted living homes in our area. In addition, there are several Community Stop locations at which the Bookmobile's services can be utilized. See you around town!Donna Jones, Bookmobile Librarian

The Bookmobile is a unique location of the library, in that it brings library materials to people. It serves as an alternative to stationary locations, and can go places where library use may otherwise be minimal or nonexistent, breaking down barriers of unfamiliarity and reaching people who cannot get to a library building due to physical, economic, social, geographic, or other barriers. In fulfilling this mission, the primary functions of the bookmobile are to:

  • Offer current popular materials and reference information for people of all ages
  • Promote basic literacy and a lifelong desire to read
  • Present programs to encourage continued use of the bookmobile, particularly for children
  • Introduce readers to library services
  • Provide personalized library service in a cozy, friendly environment
  • Generate a positive image of the library as a whole by being highly visible throughout the entire community

The Bookmobile does not make home visits to individuals who are not homebound.  To request that the Bookmobile begin visiting your location, please contact Kristi Tucker @ 270-527-9969 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
