This traveling vehicle is essentially another branch of the Catawba County Library and is intended to bring empowering services and resources from within the library walls and into communities that need them the most.

A ribbon-cutting to kick off the premiere of Library to Go took place Thursday, November 29 at the Newton Recreation Center. Speakers included Catawba County Chamber of Commerce staff, Catawba County Board of Commissioners chair Randy Isenhower, and Catawba County Library System director Suzanne White.

The Library to Go features lots of colorful graphics and is equipped with computers, solar panels, an awning, exterior lighting, and wireless access points. When it arrives for a visit, it will be unloaded, and spaces will be set up with bookshelves, work tables, technologies, lounging spaces, and play and learning areas – creating a temporary, ever-changing library environment designed for interactive learning and exploration.

If you would like for the library to consider your organization for a visit, please fill out a request form at Please note that Library to Go priorities are underserved locations, non-profit agencies, and community events.
