The WOW!mobile comes to the Sun City Social Center on Tuesdays 9:00-10:30 and then goes to Cowan Creek 11:00-11:45. When there is a fifth Tuesday in the month (as there is in June) there is no WOW as that is when the vehicle has scheduled maintenance.
You can call the Georgetown Library at 512-930-3551 and request a book be brought to Sun City on the WOW!mobile for checkout with a Georgetown Library card. WOW items cannot be put on reserve through the Library Catalog.
Library cards can be issued on the WOW!mobile with the proper ID.
