For Those Who Can't Come to the Library (2 options)

1. Lawrence County Federated System Outreach Services (Bookmobile)

 

 

 

 

 

The Lawrence County Federated System Outreach Services Bookmobile is on the road five days a week, 50 weeks a year! With a 240+-mile, three week route, it serves pre-schools, senior centers, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, housing subdivisions, and the more reural communities of Lawrence County.

The Bookmobile offers a sizeable children's collection of board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books, and elementary and junion fiction and non-fiction. (Even young adults can find novels to their liking.)

More than half of the Bookmobile is specifically for the adult patron - with collections of Christian fiction, general fiction, westerns, biographies, cookbooks, and other limed (by space) non-fiction. Many of its patrons are of a "senior" variety, so more than 95 percent of the Bookmobile adult books are large print. 

All check-outs from the Bookmobile are for a three-week period, loaned at no charge. Materials may be renewed twice, and returned to the Bookmobile or other Lawrence County libraries. 

You may also register for a library card.
