Most books and audio-visual materials are checked out for four weeks from the Mobile Library. All materials may be renewed two times if the items have no holds. If an item you are looking for is not on the shelf, then be sure to ask about it. We can bring it to you if it is available.

Your first library card is free. If you lose your card, you can apply for a replacement card. There is a charge for a replacement card.
Fines are not charged if the Mobile Library fails to meet your stop. If the Mobile Library breaks down, an alternative vehicle will be sent to pick up your returns. If the bookmobile does not run because of bad weather, no fines will be charged because an alternative vehicle will not be sent out to pick up returns.
Fines on overdue materials are 10 cents per day per item. Materials borrowed from the Mobile Library may be returned to any Kanawha County Public Library system location. Also, materials borrowed from other locations may be returned to the Mobile Library.
