The Bookmobile’s Last Ride (For Now)

The library’s current bookmobile, which has been in service since 2003, made its final stops earlier this summer. The library is accepting proposals for a new bookmobile and the library is investigating alternative service models until a new bookmobile is in service.

The bookmobile has provided mobile library services at approximately 50 stops each month. These stops include retirement homes, assisted living centers, daycares, schools, communities, and special events throughout the county. To many residents in Cass County, the bookmobile has been their library.

Until a new bookmobile is in service, the library will continue to offer services in the county. Some patrons may qualify for Library by Mail. More information, including who may qualify, can be found at Other patrons will need to visit our other county branches, located in Archie, Belton, Drexel, Garden City, Harrisonville, and Pleasant Hill.

Staff helped unload and store the Bookmobile’s collection earlier this week, leaving a somber sight, but a hopeful one as we finish this chapter and start a new one. For now, the bookmobile has made its last ride, but we are optimistic as we look to the future.
