To limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect drivers and technicians, Utah’s Bookmobile service will be suspended for two weeks beginning Monday, March 16.
The Bookmobiles serve communities in 10 rural counties and Vernon in Tooele County, providing materials for patrons to check-out as well as Internet access and other services. However, with schools statewide closed until March 30 and many public buildings also closed, it isn’t feasible or safe for the Bookmobiles to continue operating.
The headquarters for each Bookmobile will also be closed during that time. The Utah State Library, which operates the Bookmobiles, will follow the guidance of local and state health officials in determining when service can resume.
Patrons throughout Utah can continue to access Utah’s Online Library for ebooks and audio books, movies, music, and more.
