If there are residents who cannot access the mobile library through being housebound, disabled or too frail to carry items, we also work in partnership with the WRVS to provide a Home Delivery Service. A separate email describing this service in detail will follow shortly, but I can refer any enquiries to the organiser in the meantime.
The Mobile Librarian has timetables and fliers for both the Mobile Library Service and the Home Library Service that can be distributed by willing volunteers. If you would like a quantity, please let me know and I will ensure copies are dropped off at your stop.

We have something for everyone!
Our fleet of 8 mobile libraries visits over 500 locations in communities across Devon giving access to books, audio books, Large Print and DVDs to people who cannot easily reach one of our 50 static libraries.
Membership is FREE, no ID needed. Join at any age – babies too!
There is no charge for borrowing books, and there’s a great choice.
You may hire a DVD from as little as £1 for a fortnight.
