About the New Mobile Library

Worcester Public Library (WPL) announced the official launch of its newest Mobile Library Branch, Library Express (Libby), on Monday, June 4th, 2012. Since 1940 bookmobile services had been offered in the city of Worcester. It had played an important outreach role, connecting new users and raising awareness of library services throughout the city. However, the services were discontinued in 1991.

The new Mobile Library features state-of-the-art equipment and technology including the use of touch screen computers, various tablets, Mi-Fi hot spots for Internet; ADA compliant with wheelchair access; low bench seating and an awning for outdoor community meeting space, story times, and other popular programs and events.

The Mobile Library serves a variety of people who cannot use their public library in the traditional way. Its service is provided to patrons Monday-Friday, on a four week rotation schedule. The Mobile Library collection includes popular books, large print books, accelerated reading books, children’s award winners, DVDs, and many more. Most items not found on the Mobile Library may be requested through the online catalog and the requested items will be delivered to you at any of the Mobile Library stops.
