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 APLD Bookmobile and Mini B (a car version of the 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. For more information regarding  Homebound service, please contact Laura Gartman.  Complete our Homebound application today or print and mail our form which also available en español.  

 Home Delivery Program

The Aurora Public Library Outreach Services Department (OSD) is pleased to announce the expansion of the homebound delivery program. This “no contact” delivery service is now open to Aurora residents who meet any of the following criteria:

  1. Illness, injury, or physical handicap regardless of length of time
  2. Customers who previously visited the Bookmobile as their primary library branch
  3. Customers previously served at lobby stops
  4. Vulnerable population (self-professed)
  5. Lack of reliable transportation
  6. Reside more than 2 miles from any branch  

Using the Mini B, this is strictly a drop-and-go holds delivery service. After determining qualification for the program, customers will place their own holds via phone or website, with a limit of 10 items per delivery. When the holds have arrived, OSD staff will contact the customer to arrange the delivery date and window of time. Items will be placed in disposable plastic bags and left at the customer’s front door. At this time, returns will not be picked up due to space limitations in the Mini B and the need for quarantine.

For any questions or concerns about home delivery, please contact the Outreach Services Department at 630-723-2705.
