Mobile libraries are an integral part of public libraries and a form of a rational way of providing services to residents with an infavorable position when it comes to accessing a stationed library. With their general goal of promoting equality in the provision of library services by increasing the possibilities for accessing them, and with their adaptability, boundlessness with residency and the ability to answer the needs of the changing population, mobile libraries reduce social isolation and improve the quality of community life. This paper provides a clarification of the term mobile libraries and other essential features important for establishing mobile library services. The work focuses on mobile libraries in Croatia, therefore it provides an overview of their developement from the beginning of the 20th century until the present day. The paper displays an example of the Rijeka City Library, which with its two bookmobiles successfully achieves the fundamental goal of mobile libraries. The paper presents the results of an research of the staff and users of the Rijeka bookmobile service, which can serve as an encouragement for further improvement of the bookmobile services.
