Get Your Mobile Library Rolling!

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version
The St. Charles City-County Library Foundation is raising funds for a new Mobile Library! 
We need your help. 

The mobile library is more than a van carrying books -  it's a library on wheels! This method of delivery extends library services to places in our communities that have limited access to full-service branches. 


Here are some of the features it will offer:


  • a wheelchair lift and two entry/exit doors 
  • shelving for a wide variety of materials
  • indoor seating
  • technology for customer use, including WiFi, printing, and copying
  • an outdoor video screen with an awning and seating for classes and events 
  • all-season heating and cooling 


The mobile library is designed in a way that allows for safe travel on rural, suburban, city, and highway roads, and it will be able to easily carry heavy loads.


The Library board approved Summit Bodyworks Specialty Vehicles out of Fort Lupton, CO to build the mobile library at a cost not to exceed $314,619. It is expected to roll out into the community in the fall of 2021.

We have already raised $150,000 towards our goal so far! We need your help!
We hope that individuals, businesses and organizations will consider giving to the fund.
