Lancashire’s mobile libraries cover the whole of Lancashire, serving over a thousand stops on a fortnightly basis.
Mobile libraries carry a selection of books suitable for all ages, including large print, and in some cases talking books as well. Any item in stock anywhere in Lancashire can be provided on request. If the request is made online, then the item is often available on the next visit. Internet access is not available from mobile libraries.
Every mobile library is fully accessible, with a lift for people with mobility impairments. Because of the limited space available, the vans are not suitable for large motorised wheelchairs.
Existing mobile library customers who need to know the date of the next visit and who know where their vehicle is based can contact the appropriate library. New customers who need to know the location of their nearest stop should contact the library service either by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01772 534008.
