Bookmobile

The Bookmobile service includes two vehicles, each with its own unique collection. Bookmobile items are not-Holdable in order to ensure that all our bookmobile communities have equitable access to new and exciting materials.

To see whether an item you want is available to be picked up at a particular stop, please call 613-580-2424 x32629 or email Bookmobile@BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca

  • The on-board collection includes English, French and multilingual material for children, teens and adults
  • The bookmobile is wheelchair accessible
  • The mini Bookmobile has free public wifi as well as maker equipment including a Maker-bot mini (3D printer), Chromebooks (laptops), Public WiFi, Makey Makeys (micro-controllers), and LED Throwies (glow-dots)

Customers can:

  • Get research and homework help on board
