Bookmobiles are one of the most endearing specialty vehicles on the road today and many of us have fond memories of the "mobile libraries" of yesteryear.  In the same way fixed libraries have evolved over the years, Bookmobiles have also become sophisticated public information centers; typically offering far more than just books.  The very latest bookmobiles have adopted very environmentally friendly elements to become some of the greenest specialty vehicles on the road today!   Anaheim Public Library Bookmobile

Modern Bookmobiles can also feature many high-tech options such as: broadband connectivity, microprocessor controlled power systems, LED lighting systems, electronic climate control, etc.  These improvements have enhanced Bookmobile operability and longevity, but have come at the expense of increased complexity and cost. 

An experienced bookmobile consultant will help you weed through your options to determine the best solutions for your unique area and outreach program.

  As the former Director of Operations for one of the largest Bookmobile manufacturers in the USA, and current Chairman of the American Library Association's Subcommittee on Bookmobiles, Michael Swendrowski is recognized as an expert on Bookmobiles and offers his expertise to Libraries worldwide as a bookmobile consultant.

Thank you so much for your enormous help!  We're going to have a project that we can be very proud of and one which will be a model for other bookmobiles.  We just could not have accomplished this on our own.

project SVS is proud to be affiliated with.



 I just wanted to drop you a short line to thank you for all of your hard work on behalf of the Library and bookmobile project. The bookmobile was delivered with minimal problems. (the main problem was us learning how to operate everything!!)...I believe this is due mainly to your diligence in inspecting the unit during construction, and staying on top of the vendor to make sure everything was built as ordered. I do not think we would have as finished a product as we have without your assistance. The bookmobile looks absolutely stunning. It will be a great asset to the City for many years to come.

 Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication to making sure this project came to a very successful conclusion.

The Homer Township Public Library bookmobile

Hello Michael,


It has been just about a year since our ‘one-of-a-kind’ vehicle returned to us from its Maker. 

Thank you for all your help and expertise in troubleshooting and resolving our myriad of problems. It is really due to you that we are on the road, checking out about 7,000 items per month.

Have a wonderful summer and when our paths cross again, I hope that is has nothing to do with our current vehicle. 


Thanks a million,

Michelle Wisniewski
