BCPL Bookmobile arriving soon near you


Bruce County Public Library is overjoyed to announce the arrival of the long-awaited Bookmobile! The BCPL Bookmobile is a mobile library designed to bring the joy of reading and learning directly to underserved communities throughout Bruce County.

The Bookmobile will begin visiting stops on the Fall/Winter schedule on Tuesday, October 10.  You can visit the Library website for a route calendar. Route locations were carefully chosen to ensure maximum outreach to neighbourhoods with limited access to traditional Library services. When selecting stops, remote communities, senior isolation and mobility, and financial barriers were taken into consideration.

“We are excited to introduce the Bookmobile as an extension of our Library. Through a mobile Branch, we can effectively provide equal access to literature, education, and technology to all members of our communities. We are immensely grateful for the generosity of our donors, who made the Bookmobile a reality,” said Library Director Brooke McLean.

“It is exciting to see the amazing learning and recreation opportunities provided by our Bruce County Public Library be shared with more residents across the County. The new Bookmobile service will offer significant access and resources to our underserved communities,” added Bruce County Warden Chris Peabody. ‘Thank you to Library Staff and our Bookmobile sponsors for helping bring this opportunity to life.”

Patrons can expect a collection of books, DVDs, and educational materials, including tech kits. The Bookmobile is also outfitted with a free Wi-Fi hub and wireless printing. The Bookmobile staff are dedicated to creating a safe and welcoming space and assisting patrons of all ages. The Bookmobile will surely be a promising hub of learning and imagination for everyone.

BCPL plans to announce the official launch party date shortly and invites everyone to find a nearby stop location to see the Bookmobile in person. Route schedules are available on our website at library.brucecounty.on.ca. Remember to watch for it on the road and give them a wave!
