The library book drop is located at City Hall (250 Main St.). You can drive right up and return your books without getting out of your vehicle.

We try to keep a rotating collection that includes something for everyone on the Bookmobile. But if you don’t find what you want to borrow on the Bookmobile, tell the staff what you are looking for and we’ll do our best to get it for you so you can pick it up the very next week.
Here are the weekly Bookmobile stops in Peculiar:
|Wednesdays 1:45 – 2:45
