Mobile & Housebound Services

For those living in rural areas where no static library is available, we have three mobile libraries which regularly visit smaller communities.

Each vehicle carries a range of books and talking books to suit all age groups and all are equipped with disabled access and a hearing loop.

Mobile library routes

Check our mobile library route viewer to find out when the mobile library visits your area.
The mobile library visits each area every 3 weeks.

Using the mobile library

If you are already a member, take your Library membership card with you and visit the mobile library at a stop near you. If you are not a member, take proof of your identity and address (e.g. a utility bill or a driver's licence) and ask to join. You can borrow up to 30 books or talking books and you will be able to borrow straight away.

If you need a new mobile library stop, contact library services or ask staff on the mobile library.

Unfortunately there are occasions when we have to withdraw the service due to dangerous weather conditions, breakdowns or maintenance.  We will do our best to notify you if the van cannot visit.

Housebound services

We deliver a housebound library service to borrowers who are more or less confined to their home, for the very old or for persons with disability who cannot reach their local library. Please contact us for further information on this service.
