KCPL Mobile Library Returns to Regular Service

It’s back on the road again for KCPL’s Mobile Library. The bookmobile’s regular service schedule was shut down due to the COVID pandemic in 2020, but the Mobile Library hits the streets again beginning July 6th. Since January, the Mobile Library has provided curbside service at the Patrick Street Plaza in Charleston. That service will end on June 25th to allow the staff to restock the shelves and prepare for the resumption of regular bookmobile service.  

“We’re excited to get the Mobile Library back on the road,” said Mobile Library Manager Anthony DeMinico. “Bookmobile service is an essential KCPL service because it allows us to bring the library to underserved areas of Kanawha County. We expect the schedule that begins on July 6th to be our regular weekly schedule until the start of school.”
