Mobile Library Service

REDUCED SERVICE – Book bag deliveries only

We are now in a position where we can deliver bags of books to some of our mobile and housebound customers. Each customer will be contacted individually about their requirements. Please note we are still working in a very restricted way with only a few staff, so we can't fulfil requests for individual items, but we can make you up a selection. We particularly want to make sure we are getting books to customers who have no Internet, are visually impaired or shielding.


If you have not been contacted, but would like a home delivery, or would like more information about this service, please contact Catherine Jeromson, Support Services Librarian by e-mailing


We hope to make book deliveries on the following dates to these areas.
