Opening Times


Our new mobile library is almost ready. We are just putting the finishing touches to it and will be launching it on Saturday 10 June.

We will be closing our temporary service at Oaken Grove Community Centre on Saturday 3 June at 12.30pm to move everything across.

From Saturday 10 June our mobile library will be open five days a week, in four different locations and each stop will be for a full day. We will stop at the same place on the same day every week so you will know when to expect us.
