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 pickup at the Bookmobile.

How do I return books?

You can return your books at any of our remote bookdrops or downtown at the Iowa City Public Library.

Where do I find schedule updates?

Bookmobile service will occasionally be interrupted by holidays and inclement weather and COVID-19. For the most up-to-date information, look at our daily schedule on this web page.

You can also sign up to receive our Bookmobile newsletter. Sign up via the City of Iowa City's E-subscriptions page and look for ICPL The Windshield under Newsletters.
