From Monday 14 September, North Lincolnshire Libraries will be offering a new kind of Mobile Library service.
Customers will be able to collect a bag of Ready Reads from the Mobile Library at a pre-arranged time.
Ready Reads are a selection of books or audiobooks chosen by library staff, based on what the customer has told them they would like to read. The service has already been running in several of our libraries, where we have been unable to offer browsing for health and safety reasons.
If you are a Mobile Library customer and you have previously given us your contact details, such as a phone number or e mail address, the Mobile Library staff will contact you and ask you whether you would like to use this service.
They will take some details from you about the sort of books you would like, and then offer you a date and time for collection.
The Mobile Library will only visit a stop if there is an arrangement for customers to collect Ready Reads.
Customers collecting their Ready Reads will not be able to go on to the vehicle and browse, but they will be able to return their loans at the same time. Returned books will be quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours.
If you are an existing customer and you do not hear from Mobile Library staff, or if you would like to know more about this service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01724 865675
