About the Mobile Library

Our Mobile Library brings important library resources into the community. It allows us to reach neighborhoods, communities, and individuals across Grand Rapids.

Since 2020, our Mobile Library has provided targeted neighborhood access to library resources — deepening our connection with local organizations and community partners, and bridging early literacy gaps.

Little Book Nooks

Our Little Book Nooks offer free books and information to visitors of local organizations. They feature colorful bookshelves, library handouts, and free books selected by our staff. We’ve partnered with the Hispanic Center of West Michigan to pilot Little Book Nooks.
