75 Years of Service

75 Years of Bookmobile service
Operating since 1928, the bookmobile continues a strong tradition of public service.



What could be easier than picking up a few books from the Bookmobile while shopping at your local shopping center?
Our mobile library provides a time-saving alternative to a drive to a branch library. It also extends library services to residents in outlying areas of Duval County, where branch libraries are not located.


With more than 4,000 books, the Bookmobile's collection offers materials for children and adults, including both fiction and non-fiction.
  • The reading level of children's books ranges from preschool through sixth grade.
  • The adult collection includes traditional books, paperback books, large print books, books on tape and CD, and magazines. There is also a small reference section.
Today's Bookmobile

Today’s Bookmobile
The newly remodeled bookmobile reflects its history and provides the modern conveniences of a full service branch.

The Bookmobile is a mobile branch of the Jacksonville Public Library. It provides the same service as any other branch.
If the book you want is not on the Bookmobile, please request the book to be sent to the Bookmobile. You will receive a notice when the Bookmobile has your book. The item you requested will be carried on the Bookmobile for the following two stops.
