Will you tell me how you public libraries in Finland offer delivery service(a book mobile or traveling library) to schools? Is there any regular way? I want to know whether you have a certain subject or not, have a regulations on the numbers of books you offer, pay some attention to the age of the pupils or students when you offer delivery service to schools.

In Finland the delivery service is meant mainly for people who cannot visit library because of an illness or a disability. But we have a mobile library (buses) which brings library services close to schools. In Helsinki we have also buses in which there are books only for children. Many teachers also bring their pupils to the library. For more information you should visit for example these sites:
