Mobile library – immediate withdrawal of service

The Mobile Library was due to be decommissioned in all 3 options in the budget proposals and the service has been running as normal pending the final Council decision.

Due to the age and the condition of the vehicle, there is a risk of incurring expensive repair work each time it goes out and the recent spending controls imposed by the Director of Finance under Section 114, mean that we have had to withdraw the service with immediate effect.

Customers of the service are being contacted by telephone.

Our Mobile Library driver will continue to visit the mobile library stops for one last visit to see as many customers as possible. He will be stopping at the normal place at the normal time, but in a different vehicle, to collect stock from customers.

If you are not able to attend the last mobile library visit you can return any items to any of our libraries.  All overdue charges will be waived.

If you have any questions relating to the Mobile Library Service, please contact

You can still enjoy the library service even if you are unable to visit your local library through our Library to You service and the Sound Reads service:
