New Mobile Library Services Across Largo: a dream come true!

The Largo Bookmobile will soon bring mobile library services to areas of Largo. The bookmobile will begin regularly scheduled operations in January 2019. The schedule and routes will be available on the library's website at: www.LargoPublicLibrary.org. Customers will also be able to request a stop location through the website.

The Largo Public Library will be unveiling their new Bookmobile to the public in three Open House celebrations:

December 3rd — 9:00am-12:00noon
December 17th — 4:00pm-6:00pm
December 20th — 1:00pm-3:00pm

Historically, mobile delivery of library service methods included Bicycle, Wagon, Donkey Cart, Camel, Boat, Helicopter, Train, and the more recent Van or Mini-bus method. Bookmobiles have served communities in the U.S. for over 100 years, bringing access to information and life-long learning resources. Currently, only about 6% of public libraries offer bookmobile service in this country, with a total of 659 bookmobiles. Make that 660 as of January, thanks to generous contributions that made the Largo Bookmobile a reality!

People of all ages will find a variety of materials on board from which to choose. The Bookmobile will carry approximately 2,500 items. Children and teens will see a mix of classics and new books, and adults will have access to current bestsellers and some perennial favorites. The latest DVD releases will be available to borrow, as well as audiobooks and CDs.

Library staff will provide programs at some scheduled stops in order to build a community of readers. Programs may include story times, book talks, book club support, and informational programs about services available at the library.
