Program Description: Community Stop
Event Details:

Join the Mobile Library in your neighborhood! La Porte County Public Library offers mobile library service that carries books, movies, and more to customers in our service area. 

At the bookmobile, you can:

  • Borrow popular books, DVDs, and more -- just like at the library!
  • Get a library card or update your account
  • Pick up holds and return items
  • Get answers to your questions or help finding community resources

Do you have an event you'd like the Mobile Library to attend? Know a good place for the Mobile Library to stop? Email outreach@laportelibrary.org to get started. 

Come join us for 2023 La Porte City Band Concert Series. ​The La Porte City Band, founded in 1879, is the oldest continuously operating municipal band in the United States.
