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.

Can I pick up holds and ILLs at the Bookmobile?
Anyone with an ICPL library card can check out materials at the Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile. When you ask for a hold or Interlibrary Loan let us know you'd like to pick it up at the Bookmobile.

Can I pick up holds for someone else?
Yes! Please bring their library card with you. Also, when placing the hold, choose the Bookmobile as the pickup location.

What safety precautions are staff taking?
Hand sanitizer and masks will be available, and staff have surface cleaners on hand.
If you don't feel comfortable visiting the Bookmobile or Downtown Library, check out our At Home program where we can mail items to those who are not able to visit us in-person.

How do I get a library card?
You can register for a library card online.

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 downtown at the Iowa City Public Library.

Where do I find schedule updates?
Bookmobile service will occasionally be interrupted by holidays and inclement weather. For the most up-to-date information, look at our daily schedule on this web page.

Are you affiliated with Antelope Lending Library?
The Antelope Lending Library is an independent non-profit bookmobile that operates in the Iowa City area. For more information visit the Antelope Lending Library website.
