Alameda County Mobile Library Interest Form
Thank you for your interest in having a mobile library visit your location on a regular basis! Please be advised that though we do not currently have openings in our schedule, we re-assess the bookmobile schedule (on a yearly basis) to fill any open spots. We will evaluate each application to see if it meets logistical considerations, such as integration into schedule, geographic location, ease of parking, and number of people potentially served. Please fill out as best as you can and we will follow up with you via email or phone for additional information if your location meets our criteria for an upcoming opening. Thanks for your patience. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
