What is the Bookmobile?
The Bookmobile is a mobile library service from the Iowa City Public Library (ICPL). In addition to a collection of new and popular books and DVDs on the Bookmobile, you can check out anything from ICPL’s collection by placing a hold and requesting pick-up at the Bookmobile.

How do I check out books?
Anyone who has an ICPL Library Card can check out materials at the Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile.

How do I get a Library Card?
Any Iowa resident may obtain an ICPL Library Card on the Bookmobile or at the Downtown Library. Register for your card in person or pre-register online. A photo ID and Iowa address verification are required.

How do I return books?
You can return your books at any of the Bookmobile’s weekly stops, at any of our remote bookdrops, or at the Iowa City Public Library.

Can I pick up my holds at the Bookmobile?
Yes, you can! When you ask for a hold through ICPL, let us know if you’d like to pick it up at the Bookmobile.

Are there Library programs on the Bookmobile?
The Bookmobile stops at Stories in the Park programs in the summer on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Other special programs are planned periodically. Check the calendar for programs.
