There’s a new mobile library hitting the village streets of B&NES on Monday, July lst.

The custom-designed vehicle will provide communities across the authority with a full lending service giving access to DVDs, talking books and the three million books available from the LibrariesWest catalogue.

It will also offer digital access to online services and Wi-Fi for users of the service.

Councillor Paul Crossley, cabinet member for Community Services, said: “We know how much the mobile library is valued by customers across Bath and North East Somerset and this new vehicle will serve our communities for many years to come. It is more fuel-efficient than its predecessor and as it is slightly slimmer it will be better able to cope with country lanes offering a more reliable service to rural communities.”

Residents may get a glimpse of the new mobile library during the last week of June as it will be testing all routes before is starts providing a full service for customers on July 1.

Full details of mobile library’s routes and timings can be found on the council’s website:
