The bookmobile provides library services for Bay County residents who do not live near one of our branches. It is on the road three days a week, Tuesday through Thursday, stopping at 45 locations, including senior and day care centers, throughout the county on a rotating, 3-week schedule.


The bookmobile carries a rotating collection of Bay County Library System materials that can be browsed and checked out. Materials checked out from the bookmobile can be returned to any branch and materials checked out from any branch can be returned to the bookmobile. It also serves as a location where materials from our libraries, or other Michigan libraries, can be requested, checked out and returned.The bookmobile carries a laptop computer that is available for checking and sending email. Children’s programs are offered from time-to-time during fair weather months.
