Bookmobile

Driven to Read

The new Natrona County Library bookmobile delivers information, ideas, & excitement!

Our new bookmobile brings library services to patrons in far or underserved communities, supports access to community resources, and builds meaningful relationships that foster love for literacy and lifelong learning.

The 2020/2021 project was made possible through the support of:

  • The Masterson Family Foundation and the Kelly Foundation, whose donations funded the bookmobile wrap
  • Natrona County and the City of Casper through optional 1¢ funds to purchase the new bookmobile

Bookmobile Services

Our bookmobile patrons receive the same amazing service they have come to expect at the Natrona County Library, including the ability to ask reference questions, request materials, and apply for a library card.

Education

StoryTimes, classroom & teacher library cards, digital resource assistance, and more.

Senior Services

Large-print collection, troubleshooting with technology, lobby stops, and more.

Community Stops

Specialized programming and collection access to organizations and public locations throughout the community.

Remote Locations

Pick up materials that have been placed on hold or from interlibrary loan, return checked-out materials, reference services, and more.

Service Model

The service model for the bookmobile is based upon the following principles:

  • Portability: Bringing information, ideas, and excitement outside of our walls to underserved communities through on-board browsing and lobby stops.
  • Accessibility: Providing resources to patrons of diverse ages, languages, abilities, and backgrounds while introducing new users to their library.
  • Flexibility: Offering a library collection that is tailored specifically for the audience at the bookmobile’s destination.
  • Representation: The stunning new wrap is representative of what makes our community so special: the great outdoors.
