Mobile libraries



Our mobile libraries provide:

  • books for loan for adults and children
  • large print books
  • talking books.

Joining and using

Joining a mobile library is no different from joining any other library in Nottinghamshire and once you've joined you can use any library in the county or in Nottingham city.

You may request items from a mobile library as you would with a local library. Any items that you request will be available for you to collect from the mobile library on a later visit to your area.

If you miss a mobile library visit and you need to return borrowed items, you can return them to the mobile library on its next visit. Alternatively, you can also return any items borrowed from a mobile library to any local library. You can also renew books and other items, online or over the telephone.

Disabled access

Mobile libraries have a lift that can accommodate wheelchair users or people who find steps difficult. Please ask for help if you wish to use it.


Occasionally we have to take our mobile libraries off the road for repair or routine maintenance. We try to do this at times which cause minimum inconvenience to you. We will announce the dates as early as possible.

If the service is cancelled because of breakdown or weather conditions we will try and telephone a contact in your community to let you know the mobile library will not be calling. In these circumstances your items will not be overdue if you return them on the next scheduled visit.

School visits

Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City schools can book a visit by the mobile library to bring the service direct to pupils.
