Mobile Service

When the library comes to you

We bring the library to door steps and community events with our mobile service.

  • Have an event? We’ll bring library fun and other activities for your attendees
  • Check out hotspots to accomplish tasks on the internet and conduct household business online
  • Find a book in your first language

Vincent Van Go (aka Vinny)
A kind-of library on wheels bringing books, movies, STEM kits and mobile hotspots to affordable housing communities twice a month. See when Vinny is in your community and have your requested books or other library items available for pick-up.*

This van provides pop-up programming, gaming and/or presentations. Let us know if you'd like to see us for a one-time or a recurring event.

Mobile library (aka The Wanderer)
An actual bookmobile where you can walk in and browse the mobile stacks. We travel to Rancho Murieta (a town with no library) once a week and then make the rounds throughout the county, visiting more than 40 regular sites once a month. The bookmobile collection has something for all ages, but is focused on seniors. See where we’ll stop next.
*Vinny is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
Have Questions?
How can I support mobile outreach?

Make a donation to the library and designate the funds for mobile services. You’ll help us build our Lucky Day selections, programming and technology capabilities.

Are the vehicles earth-friendly?

Vinny is earth-friendly, producing less of a harmful impact than comparable conventional internal combustion engines. We’re also working on updating our other vehicles to meet the same standards.

How do you choose the route?

Many factors determine whether mobile services can accommodate adding a new stop including location, needs of the site applying, and how it aligns with the current route’s schedule.
