Thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Northwest Regional Library System offers Mobile Library visits in Bay, Gulf and Liberty Counties! Activities and services provided may vary from stop to stop but all Mobile Library visits will provide the opportunity to:

  • Borrow books, DVD movies, and Books on CD for all ages.
  • Return books borrowed from any NWRLS library.

  • Pick-up previously requested materials.
  • Access free Wi-Fi from our hotspot.

Please note, a valid library card is required to borrow library materials from the Mobile Library. Items borrowed will be due upon the next visit of the Mobile Library, however items may be returned to any NWRLS location.

Once safe to resume small gatherings, Mobile Library visits may include special programs such as Virtual Reality Demonstrations, Technology Training Classes, 3D Printing, Craft and Maker activities, STE(A)M games, and more!
