Book Bus

Stop by the library’s Book Bus and receive a free book!

Free Books

Say hello to our Book Bus! With the goal of getting free books in the hands of Campbell County children, patrons can find it visiting the library’s branches, community events and more throughout the year. 

While the Book Bus primarily stocks free books for children ages newborn to fifth grade, it does have a smaller supply of books for any tweens, teens or adults who may visit.

All Book Bus visitors are allowed one free book per visit.

Additional Services

The vehicle provides free public Wi-Fi for all visitors. You can also sign up for library cards, return library items you have checked out, and ask staff members questions about library programs and services.

Upcoming Visits

The Book Bus visits a variety of community events and spaces in Campbell County throughout the year. It also occasionally stops by large library programs.
