The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library’s bookmobiles, Adventure and Discovery, are taking on a temporary new role: They’re delivering free food starting Monday, July 6.

The United Way of Howard and Tipton Counties, in partnership with Fiat Chrysler, created meal bags for students in Howard County. The bags have six to eight meals in them, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Now that school is out for the summer, United Way and Fiat Chrysler needed a way to distribute the bags. That’s when KHCPL stepped up to help.

“KHCPL prides itself on partnering with others and serving Kokomo and Howard County,” said Lisa Fipps, KHCPL Director of Marketing. “Our bookmobiles already deliver books to the community. Why not food? There’s a limited supply of meal bags, so we’ll distribute them on a first-come, first-served basis at our public stops.”

To find out where the bookmobiles will be, please go to our website for the schedule: //www.khcpl.org/bookmobile-schedule.

To protect everyone and to do our part to try to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the community, please follow these safety guidelines.

  • Since the bookmobiles are smaller, confined spaces, we request you have a mask on before you join us. Our bookmobile staff will be wearing masks, too.
  • We will have hand sanitizer available for patrons and staff.
  • We’ll allow one family or up to two patrons to be in a bookmobile at a time.
