bclc is also responsible for provision of library services to those citizens and students who are not served, for whatever reason, by a municipal or school library. To meet this need, bclc provides outreach services such as a bookmobile and deposit stations (small collections of resources changed quarterly at designated locations throughout baldwin county). The baldwin county library cooperative and its member libraries will work together to provide the best possible library services, information technology and telecommunications access to our citizens.
