MRRL Board of Trustees:
The Missouri River Regional Library Bookmobile makes school and community stops throughout Cole and Osage Counties. We offer a full range of children's and adult titles, including fiction & non-fiction, paperbacks, audiocassettes, CDs, and videotapes. In addition, any title from our regular collection can be requested through the bookmobile, and picked up at the appropriate stop. If you have any questions, please call Jon Karr at (573) 634-6064 ext. 240.
Requests for renewal should be made no later than 1 week before the due date. An email address is required for this form to work. For books that you have checked out from us that were not received through the ILL system, please use our online catalog to renew or call us at (573) 634-2426.
Can't find what you need in our library's collection? We will be glad to borrow items on your behalf from another library. Interlibrary Loan is available to residents of Cole or Osage County or those who purchase a non-resident library card from MRRL. Reciprocal borrowers are encouraged to use their home libraries for Interlibrary Loan services.
Please note that the length of check out is set by the LOANING library.
