There are 3 main services we offer which mean you can still enjoy the Library Service even if you are unable to visit your local library: the mobile library, the Home Library Service and the Sound Reads Service.
There is a mobile library van which covers the east and west of the county.

Mobile library review 2017
We review the mobile library service every year and work with our drivers to look at all the comments and suggestions we receive.
As a general rule we will try to add time to busy stops and remove stops where less than two people use them. Sometimes the logistics of this mean we have to amend the times of other stops to make the routes cost effective and fuel efficient.
We continue to welcome your comments which will feed into the next annual review. Please continue to log your comments with our drivers.

This is a free service for customers who are unable to get to the library, either through age or disability.
- A member of library staff will call you to explain how the service works and to discuss your reading preferences
