National Bookmobile Week

by on April 5th, 2018

We’re so excited about National Bookmobile Day we’re celebrating ALL WEEK!

Visit any ICPL Bookmobile stop between April 9 and 12 and receive a sweet treat and other goodies to help us celebrate one year of Bookmobile service.

The Iowa City Public Library’s Bookmobile rolled into town in April of 2017. After nearly a year of service, we have a lot to celebrate! Over 20,000 items checked out, over 12,000 visitors, and 79 storytime programs offered with over 2,500 people attending. We average about 6 checkouts per mile driven.

Iowa City Transit is also helping us celebrate National Bookmobile Week at our elementary school stops – Monday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Lemme, Tuesday from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. at Grant Wood, and Thursday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Mark Twain. These stops will include a visit from the City of Iowa City Transit Department and one of the City’s new Transit buses.

A complete Bookmobile schedule can be found at www.icpl.org/bookmobile. For more information, please call the Library at 319-356-5200 or visit us at the ICPL Bookmobile.
