The FCPL Bookmobile is here! We’re loading up books and computers right now and we expect to be fully outfitted and ready to begin building routes around Forsyth County in late November.
The launch of the Bookmobile is a result of the library’s strategic plan and will help the library reach its goal of serving the entire Forsyth County community. The Bookmobile will lower barriers to using public libraries by bringing books, technology, and resources to areas that are further away from the library’s physical locations. With nearly 250 square miles to cover in Forsyth County and over 236,000 residents, demand for the Bookmobile’s services is expected to be high.
FCPL invested approximately $400,000 in the Bookmobile vehicle, books and materials, and onboard computer equipment. Funding for the Bookmobile was provided by impact fees.
