Mobilivre-Bookmobile was an annual touring library and exhibition of zines, artists' books and independent publications.

Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., for five years, from 2001 till 2006, the Mobilivre-Bookmobile toured North America in a 1959 Airstream mobile home that had been reconverted into a library and reading room, stopping at zine festivals, art galleries, libraries and community centers and opening its doors for anyone who wanted to read for free.

The Projet Mobilivre-Bookmobile Project was run by the Bookmobile Collective, a group of volunteers made up of North American artists and community activists. At their stops across North America, they would give workshops on such subjects as book-making and book binding, artists' talks, and educational forums on a community level. . Their goal was to fuse artistic production with political activism and community organising. Each year they would select from submissions the publications that they would take on tour, ensuring a wide selection from the worlds of zine publishing, artists' books and independently released projects.
