Have you visited a mobile library recently?

If you are a parent with young children, you will find a great range of picture books and story CDs for them to enjoy; there are information books and plenty of exciting reading for older children as well.

For adults, there are a large range of information books and novels, ranging from the latest thriller to best-selling autobiographies, cookery and gardening. There is also a wide selection of large print and talking books.

If you are looking for a particular title and can’t find it the Mobile Library Manager will be happy to reserve it for you and bring it on a future visit, there is no charge for children’s stock but a small charge of 85p for adult reservations.

It is free to join the library and there are no fines for overdue books. So why not try it and see how much more there is on a mobile library? It’s easy to join, just bring along proof of your name and address and the friendly Mobile Manager will sign you up straight away – they are always happy to help.
