The Bookmobile is the mobile service of the Public Library Service of the Virgin Islands that operates on the island of Tortola. It allows the customers in remote areas to access materials found in the local libraries such as books and magazines. These materials are conveniently stored on shelves to accommodate avid readers. The bookmobile is also equipped with other media and IT equipment. The objectives are to provide a library service to primary schools and the prison, to encourage reading and to promote literacy.
