Bookmobile & Outreach Services



The Outreach Services Department brings your library to you, wherever you are!  With a Bookmobile visiting schools, parks, and community centers, alongside Homebound Delivery Services that provide essential resources and materials to anyone facing physical or transportation barriers, we strive to strengthen and improve the quality of life for our customers by building community both within and outside of the library walls.

Bookmobile

The Bookmobile serves all of Aurora, including schools, neighborhoods, parks, and various other community locations. The Bookmobile has a large collection of books in both English and Spanish for adults, teens, and children, comprised of popular fiction, high interest non-fiction, graphic novels, magazines, audio books, and DVDs. We also carry a collection of large print books for adults. The Bookmobile has scheduled stops Monday - Saturday, approximately 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

Special Event Services


The Bookmobile is available for special event appearances including, but not limited to, parades, citywide festivals, school celebrations, block parties, and other community events.  At these special events, Bookmobile staff are proud to represent and promote library services, literacy, and the love of reading. Please contact Sheri Roberts for more information.

Homebound

Free home delivery of library resources is available for those with long term mobility constraints due to illness, injury, or physical disability and are unable to come to the library or Bookmobile. Books, DVDs, and audio books are selected to match the customer’s interests. Visits are generally once a month. This service is also available to Spanish speaking residents.
