Where is the Bookmobile?

 

Alameda County Library Bookmobile

    Come visit the Alameda County Library Bookmobile, a vibrant, traveling library that houses materials and resources for all ages, including: fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, music CDs, DVDs, Large Type books, books on CD, and a staff that's always glad to help you find what you're looking for. 

With your Alameda County Library card, items can be borrowed and returned just as you would at any of our brick-and-mortar libraries.  The Bookmobile visits schools, daycares, senior housing facilities, apartments, neighborhoods, and community centers on a three-week rotation. The Bookmobile creates a community wherever it goes, and is a wonderful place to browse, meet neighbors, and expand horizons.

For all questions about the Bookmobile,

please call our office at 510-745-1477.

 

To place holds and to check your account:

Visit our website at www.aclibrary.org.  You can also call the office or speak with a librarian on the bookmobile.

The first time you place a hold to be picked up on the bookmobile, especially if you place the hold online, please tell the librarian or call the office, to let us know which stop you will be using.  Once you have a designated stop, we will bring all of your requests to that location.  Due to space limitations, we are only able to carry the holds for the stops we will be visiting on any given day.

 What does "CHECK SHELF" mean on our catalog?

If the item you want is listed on our website as "CHECK SHELF" for bkm (bookmobile), please call our office for confirmation that the item is onboard before making the trip to one of our stops. The designation "CHECK SHELF" could mean that the item is, indeed, on the bookmobile, or it could mean it's on our backroom shelves which contain the items we use to stock the bookmobile each day.  Keep in mind that the bookmobile often leaves on its rounds by 9:00 in the morning, so call a day or more prior to your anticipated visit so that we have a better chance of locating the item and getting it onto the bookmobile.

Due Dates: 

The Bookmobile currently operates on a three-week rotation. All items (including DVD's) are checked out for three weeks in order to coincide with our visits.  The Bookmobile follows Alameda County's fines and fees policy.  Please keep track of your own due dates and, to avoid fines, return or renew your items before the due date.  

There will be occasions when the bookmobile has to go out of service or a stop has to be changed.  When this happens we do our best to notify patrons ahead of time, but this is not always possible. It is especially difficult to notify patrons of last-minute, unexpected changes, but we are sometimes able to make an attempt to reach you if you leave your contact information with one of the bookmobile librarians.

If we have to cancel a stop, we will not charge fines for the items that were due on that date.

Please feel free to call us with any questions or concerns.  We'll do our very best to help you!
