Driving on highways and back country roads from Penrose to Sapphire, we strive to serve all sectors of the Transylvania county population. Bookmobile stops are made at child care centers, Senior Centers, outlying community centers and post offices. Home bound patrons are also visited upon request.The bookmobile is a public library branch on wheels containing approximately 3600 frequently changed items for both adults and children. Books checked out on the Bookmobile are free. All you need is a library card! Patrons can register for a free library card on the bookmobile with the proper ID. Books checked out from the bookmobile can be returned to the main library. Likewise books checked out at the main library can be returned to the Bookmobile. The library recognizes that parents have the primary responsibility for guiding their children’s reading. Staff will be happy to help you find books and information you need.
