Our Bookmobile

Our Mission

We bring the library to those in our community who are unable to access or visit our physical buildings.

What We Do

The Bookmobile reflects the same services available to you at the Main Library and branches of the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County. The library’s system’s database consists of more than 8 million items shared by 93 libraries in Southeastern Ohio. You may place a special request for books that are not readily available on the Bookmobile .

We make community stops and travel to nursing homes, residential areas, along with delivery to the homebound and to senior housing.  This vehicle is the sixth one purchased since beginning operation in 1941.

This is our current schedule:
