Outreach-Outside the Library
Mobile LibrariesKansas City, Kansas Public Library (KCKPL) launched its Mobile Library service in 2014. The library added two mobile libraries to its fleet in 2016. The mobile libraries are a key component in the library’s mission of connecting members of our dynamic community with information, tools, resources, and welcoming spaces to enrich their lives.
The Mobile Libraries provide access to library collections through on-site collections of items as well as the ability to deliver branch items. They also provide patrons with the ability to access the internet through on-site wireless connections and mobile computer labs.
The purpose of the Mobile Libraries are to serve individuals who have difficulty reaching a library branch. They extend current library services to the larger community and help to lessen the digital divide.
