Mobile Library Service

The Mobile Library Service allows schools the opportunity to select books for the classroom or collectively for the school's own library. Choose from a range of approximately 4,000 volumes:- picture books, big books, easy readers, novels, short stories, myths and legends, large print, poetry, national curriculum and popular non-fiction and story tapes.'

The mobile library can visit schools twice a year to enable pupils, who otherwise may not visit a library,
to make their own choice of reading.

We also offer mobile library visits to settings other than schools -
please see Extended Services and Children's Services charges
