About the Bookmobile
The W-TCPL first instituted Bookmobile service in 1938. Today, the Bookmobile travels to over 100 locations around Trumbull County. A driver and a library specialist are on board the Bookmobile every weekday visiting housing complexes, preschool centers, and rural neighborhoods.
The Bookmobile uses an automated circulation system that connects in real time to the library's main computer system. Bookmobile staff can place reserves and make SearchOhio requests for materials not available on the Bookmobile.
The interior of the Bookmobile is spacious and bright with a large selection of books, magazines, and movies.
The Warren-Trumbull County Public Library Bookmobile has an overall height of 12 feet, and a raised roof gives customers additional head room and also provides space for extra shelving.
The bus holds approximately 3,500 books, large type books, magazines, DVDs, and compact discs, including an expanded selection of fiction titles, audio books, and movies.
Graphic designer Joyce Polenick of Warren coordinated the look of the current Bookmobile's "Driven to Read" theme, working with local artist Rick Muccio to customize the artwork that was painted on the vehicle's exterior when it was purchased in 2007.
