In the spring of 2022, the Racine Public Library will be adding a 2nd Mobile Library to add to our fleet, and we couldn’t be more excited! This Mobile Library will assist us in targeting underserved portions of our service population and allow us to even be more present at outreach and community events. This 2nd Mobile Library will act as a hybrid book and techmobile and will:
- Act as a Wi-Fi hotspot and beam out Internet for those who lack access and we will focus on the technology deserts within the City
- Bring technology fluency to residents through digital literacy classes
- Lend out laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots to address technology inequity and Internet access issues across our service population
- Serve as a Community Event / Outreach Mobile
- Offer after-school STEAM programs
- House a Spanish collection
- Offer tech classes with 3D printing, robotics, electronics, etc.
- Will be an extension of our non-traditional items as well, showcasing what the library offers beyond books
