We’re bringing the library to you.
Can’t come out to the library? We are where you are! The Racine Public Library Bookmobile makes weekly visits to communities throughout Racine County. Our mobile library fleet also hosts two book bikes and — coming soon — a brand-new Techmobile. In addition, we also deliver both to pop-up libraries for communities throughout Racine and through our home-delivery service for anyone who can’t easily make it out of their home. See below to learn more about where to find us and when.

Coming Soon: The Racine Public Library Techmobile
The library is introducing a second bookmobile to its fleet late 2022! This Techmobile will bring Wi-Fi, technology workshops, after-school STEAM trainings and borrowable tech, alongside English and Spanish books and multimedia items, to sites throughout Racine. The new mobile library will offer:
Wi-Fi hotspot which will beam out the Internet for those who lack access, focusing on technology deserts within the City
Vehicle to lend out laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots to address technology inequity and Internet access disparities across our service population.
Community Event / Outreach Mobile so we’re able to be present at most all events while the Main Bookmobile continues fulfilling its stops
STEAM provider through after school programs offering STEAM classes and tech classes with 3D printing, robotics, electronics, etc.
Community vehicle housing a Spanish collection, materials pickup, and another outlet to promote our Beyond Books Collection (nontraditional items)
Meet the people and companies addressing technological inequities and enhancing literacy — digital and traditional — throughout Racine.
To install the Techmobile’s equipment and populate its collection, we sought $55,000 in community support. We have since met our goal, thanks to the incredible generosity of the donors below and dozens of others. Thank you so much to those who have given. If you’re still interested in supporting our work in digital literacy, a donation to our general fund will support our community however it’s most needed.
