– An expedition to the pioneer era, an adventure at sea, or a trip to a distant land –
all this and more is possible through materials at the Merced County Library, and soon,
they may be coming to a location near you.
The Merced County Library is rolling out its Bookmobile next week in an effort
to bring library services to residents in areas without immediate access to a
library branch. These services include books, multimedia and internet access.
There are about 2,500 items to choose from on the Bookmobile. Materials
are available in English and Spanish.
Three computers with internet access are available for use by the
public at the Bookmobile. Members of the public can also access the
WiFi through their personal devices.
The Bookmobile will serve as a mobile library site for several locations,
including Ballico, Cressey, Planada, South Dos Palos, South Merced and Stevinson.
Other areas will also receive visits during selected public functions.
The Bookmobile’s route is scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday: Planada: Community Center: 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Merced: Stephen Leonard Park: 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Wednesday: Stevinson: Merquin Elementary School: 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

- Thursday: Cressey: Cressey Elementary School: 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
