Gothenburg City Library in Sweden currently has two mobile libraries in operation, visiting about 70 mobile library stops and 110 preschools. In 2019, the city library decided to invest in more modern and environmentally friendly vehicles by purchasing two new all-electric Volvo buses. They are scheduled to replace the existing mobile libraries in July 2020. The vehicles could keep going for more hours than the current bookmobiles. The new electric buses will operate all around the city, accessing even the Gothenburg inner-city green zone.
