How can I use the Bookmobile?

When you see us at a stop, come in and explore. A selection of materials are available for you to check out. You can even use our free wifi. You can also request any library item and the Bookmobile staff will bring it to you at your preferred stop when it is available. Be sure to select the Bookmobile as the hold location.
Anything that is checked out from the Bookmobile can be returned to the Bookmobile at any of the stops, to the Clark Fork Library or the Sandpoint Library.

About our Bookmobile

The mission of the Library District is to provide access to opportunities for discovery, connection, and lifelong learning.  In order to serve the whole district as widely as possible and to fulfill this mission statement, the Bookmobile was purchased in 2000.

The Bookmobile served the Library District for over 20 years and it was time for the big bus to retire! The Library purchased a new bookmobile in 2022.

The Library opened a Request for Proposal to design and build a new bookmobile in the spring of 2022. The winning bidder was TechOps Speciality Vehicles. As the vehicle neared completion in the winter of 2023, the Library opened a Request for Artist. Local artist/illustrator, Katya Greimes was hired to design the exterior of our new Bookmobile Sprinter Van.

The new Bookmobile arrived in July 2023! We are excited to serve our community with this Bookmobile for many years to come.
