Community Stops

Summer 2024

The Bookmobile is taking a break from Community Stops.  Instead, you can find the Bookmobile around town at special community events this summer.  Visit the Mobile Services calendar to see where you can find the Bookmobile next!

Would you like WNPL to join your special event?  We would love to visit!  Please complete the Outreach Event Application and a staff member will contact you soon.
