In a continued effort to bring library services to all corners of the county, the Defiance Public Library System’s (DPLS) Mobile Express van will take to the streets again during the week of Aug. 3 with a revised route.
The van is stocked with a small mobile print collection, which includes an assortment of reading materials for adults, teens and children. Visitors also can place holds on library materials at the van and specify a library location for pickup. Those who would like to apply for a library card can do so at the van, and obtain their card at either the Defiance, Sherwood or Hicksville library locations.
Additionally, Summer Reading Program game cards can be exchanged for prizes at the van sites.
The Defiance Mobile Express route is subject to change based on attendance, and physical distancing will be practiced at all van sites. Check defiancelibrary.org or visit the Facebook page for route updates.
