El Paso Public Library Unveils New Bookmobiles

El Paso Library The El Paso Public Library will roll-out two brand new vehicles in September that will bring mobile library service to areas of El Paso that don’t have easy access to brick and mortar facilities.

The first of these vehicles, the Bookmobile, will hit the streets of El Paso on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

The public will be able to check out materials if they have a valid library card. Those who don’t have cards already can get theirs at the bookmobile stop with a valid ID and proof of address.

The Bookmobile will operate 5 days a week, Tuesdays – Saturdays, making regular stops throughout El Paso.

The second unit, being dubbed the Kidsmobile, will travel to functions such as school visits, community fairs, special events and other locations on an as needed basis. The Kidsmobile is exactly the same as the regular bookmobile but carries books, materials and digital devices for children. Library staff plans to do story‐time and craft activities as part of their scheduled stops. Community groups and organizations can request the presence of the Kidsmobile for their events by calling 543-5470.

Both units are wheel chair accessible and have a canopy for outdoor seating. For a complete schedule of stops visit elpasolibrary.org or call 543-5433.
