Mobile CDL (a.k.a Mobee) was added to Chelsea District Library services in spring of 2023. Mobee expands access to the library’s materials, staff, technology, and services. Visitors will use it similarly to a trip to the CDL building. During a stop visitors will be able to browse the collection, check out items, get a library card, access the internet, and get answers to questions. Visitors will need a library card in good standing to receive materials. All materials borrowed may be returned to the vehicle at any scheduled stop or to the CDL building. Most items have a four-week loan period, and there are no overdue fines. Borrowers are responsible for the care and return of library materials. Lost or damaged materials will incur replacement fees.
