Sonoma County Library is always seeking ways to expand access to our services and collections. Two key components of our Reimagining Plan are to provide opportunities for all to learn, contribute, interact, and participate; and supporting community resiliency.
A key element of increasing access countywide is through our BiblioBus, a mobile library van that holds up to 600 items to browse and borrow, including DVDs, bilingual baby books, graphic novels, and copies of the library’s most requested books. Last year, the BiblioBus attended 111 events, with 11,757 people attending, and we are just getting started!
The BiblioBus is expanding its route to remote and underserved areas of our county, with stops in Bodega Bay, Cazadero, Geyserville, Monte Rio, Agua Caliente, and Larkfield-Wikiup. Patrons can browse the collection, check out new materials, sign up for a library card, access free WiFi, as well as a variety of other activities.
In addition to these new, regular stops, the BiblioBus attends community events, celebrations, and parades, and is available for private events not listed on our Community Stop schedule, such as The Living Room, an organization that promotes stability and support for Sonoma County women and children who are experiencing, or at-risk of experiencing, homelessness, and SCHIP (Sonoma County Indian Health Project).
The BiblioBus provides services in English and Spanish.
We connect with local leaders in Sonoma County to let them know about library services coming to their areas. If you would like to request the BiblioBus for an event or a regular stop, or want to know its schedule, visit sonomalibrary.org/bibliobus
