The Bookmobile travels to a variety of areas of Lycoming County to provide library materials and services. Regular stops include elementary schools, shopping areas, elder care facilities, township buildings and more.
The first stops will be on Tuesday, December 6, when the Bookmobile travels to the Williamsport Home and Apartments, Community Baptist Church, Mill Race Commons, Park Side Manor, the Meadows, Valley View and Elmcroft. The first Sunday stop will be Sunday, December 18, when the mobile library visits Linn Street Manor, Grier Street Manor, Faxon Commons and Penn Vale Homes. Regular patrons may notice a new face as Vanessa Martin takes over as the Bookmobile driver.
This outreach service is provided by the Lycoming County Library System and the James V. Brown Library as a way to support the PA Forward Initiative by providing civic, social and basic literacy opportunities for learning. The first Bookmobile went on the road in 1936 as a special service with the Lycoming County Commissioners to provide library services to rural residents. There are no late fees for Bookmobile items and Bookmobile materials can be returned at any county library:
