Outreach + Mobile Library Services

The Outreach Department at HCPL provides a variety of services to residents outside the library, particularly those facing physical, economic, social, geographic or other barriers to accessing library services. The most recognizable part of the Outreach Department is Mobile Library Service (formerly Bookmobile). Outreach services include early literacy opportunities for children, delivering library materials and programs to residents in retirement communities, representing HCPL at community events, and fostering community partnerships.

About the Mobile Library Service

The Mobile Library Service is dedicated to bringing quality outreach to retirement communities, child care centers and is a popular sight at many area events. Bringing the library out of the buildings and into the community, Henrico County Public Library's first Bookmobile went into operation in 1977. The current model was purchased in 2012 with maximum flexibility, efficiency and accessibility in mind.
