COVID-19 Update

As of June 14, Bookmobile patrons are able to enter the vehicle to browse collections. Due to the confined space, it will operate with the following restrictions:

  • All Bookmobile users over the age of two must wear a face covering to enter the vehicle. This is in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control requirement for masks on buses, trains, and other public transportation spaces that are similar to the Bookmobile. Disposable masks for adults and children will be provided to those in need.
     
  • The number of simultaneous visitors on the Bookmobile will be generally limited to one family, or to two individuals not from the same household. Given this restriction, patrons may need to wait their turn, and browsing time may be limited.
     
  • Patrons are welcome to continue to pick up holds and make returns from outside the vehicle if desired. Masks are not required for patrons who do not enter the Bookmobile.
     
  • We continue to recommend that you request your items through the online catalog or by calling 812-349-3050 during Library phone hours. Please be sure to tell staff that you want your requests to go to your Bookmobile stop. If this is your first time picking up materials at a given stop, please indicate this, along with which stop you will use. Please note that it may take 2–3 days between when you make a request and when it is available for you, or longer if all copies of the item are checked out.
