Home and mobile libraries
The mobile library is offering reserve and collect, where library members can reserve an item (by phone or online) and then collect items when notified they are available. Residents can also return books and pick up recycling bags and/or hearing aid batteries.
Our 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 with this service, which visits roadside sites, schools, nurseries, day centres, residential and sheltered homes.
Reserve and collect service
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.
When collecting an item, please bring with you your own bag for our staff to place the items in, wear a face covering, which covers your nose and mouth (unless you are exempt for medical reasons) 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.
Alternatively, call us on 01895 556446.
