Kenosha Public Library (WI) Bookmobile

Kenosha (Wisconsin) Public Library’s new bookmobile packs a lot of books into an agile step van platform. Kenosha knew they wanted a non-CDL vehicle and something that was easy to maneuver on their city route. The bookmobile is built on an 18ft. Ford F59 chassis and features a Triton SOHC V10 power plant.

 


“Kenosha’s new bookmobile is a perfect example of what you can do with a step van chassis. Flat side walls allow for tons of bookshelves and generous surface area for the colorful graphics wrap.”

– Cory Weithaus, LDV Outreach Sales Representative.


 

INTERIOR FEATURES
Inside the new bookmobile, Kenosha went with white powder coated Acore bookshelves and two white book carts to maximize interior shelving. The interior also features Wilsonart laminate countertops for a durable yet modern look. Kenosha also added a 32″ LED Smart TV with HDMI connections to the interior. Kenosha elected to upgrade driver and passenger comfort with Bostrom Pro-Ride Level II seats with air-ride flex support. In addition, Kenosha selected a Braun Century 2 Series wheelchair lift installed at the rear access door. The compact lift folds neatly and is easy to operate.

EXTERIOR FEATURES
Air conditioning is handled by a 13,500 BTU Coleman Mach 8 low-profile unit and heat is supplied by a 7,500 BTU direct-discharge gasoline-fired furnace all controlled by thermostat. Additional electric power is supplied to the truck by a Wrico 12kW liquid-cooled gasoline generator. Eye-grabbing, full-wrap graphics finish-off the exterior to command attention when the vehicle is out on the route.
