An event every 2 weeks that begins at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
The Bookmobile stops across from the Parkers Prairie Post Office every other Wednesday throughout the year. You can find the Bookmobile there from 3 pm to 4 pm. Not only does the Bookmobile have books, movies & magazines to check out, but the Bookmobile and member libraries also offer a wide variety of electronic resources including Ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, streaming movies, TV and music, and a wide variety of educational databases and distance learning resources.
In addition to providing bookmobile service to rural residents and those who live in communities without a public library, VLS provides:
- high-speed telecommunications network and internet access to member libraries, as well as technical, software, and hardware support.
- the online catalog and circulation system used by member libraries and the bookmobile.
- access to online tools, like the new JobNow and HelpNow databases, which provide free access to a virtual job coach or tutor for students in grades k-12. And access to e-resources through shared system-wide collections available on Overdrive or the My Libby app.
- inter-library loan and delivery services, which make it possible to get a book from any library in the system delivered to your home library within a few days.
- outreach services to area child care and group homes.
- Legacy Amendment funded arts, history, and cultural programming in conjunction with member libraries.
