Mobile library

We are pleased to introduce a reserve and collect service through our mobile library service from Tuesday 30 June. To help keep residents and our staff safe, new health and safety measures will be in place.

Mobile libraryOur mobile library offers a valuable service, particularly to residents who cannot visit their local library.

Access a range of books in ordinary and large print, talking books on CD, children's books, free wifi and even hearing aid batteries with this service, which visits roadside sites, schools, nurseries, day centres, residential and sheltered homes.

Reserve and collect service

The service will be available from Tuesday 30 June, and library members will be able to collect items that they have reserved for themselves or anyone living in the same household and on behalf of neighbours/relatives who have reserved items. Hearing aid batteries will also be available to pick up.

Please note: Our timetables (below) are subject to changed and will be reviewed at the end of July.

When collecting an item, please bring with you your own bag for our staff to place the items in, wear a face covering and follow guidance from our mobile library manager.

To reserve an item, visit the online catalogue at any time. Please visit our stops at least 10 minutes before our departure time, so that we can serve our next stop without delay.
