Mobile library service

Mobile libraries bring all the benefits of a modern library service to people who cannot access one of our larger libraries, or who prefer to use a more local service within their own community.

Community mobile

Community mobile provides a weekly service, following a regular timetable and carries around 2,500 items of stock, for both adults and children, plus public internet access.

Mobile libraries for children and families

Designed for young children and their families with 1,500 items specially selected to appeal to children.

  • board and picture books
  • popular stories and
  • resources to help with homework.

Parents and carers can choose from a selection of novels and information books, and access the internet. There's a cosy seating area for story-telling and a pull-out awning outside the vehicle.

Mobile libraries for older people

Two small vehicles with 1,000 items of stock make fortnightly visits to our older borrowers and stop close to residential homes and sheltered housing complexes, making access easier for anyone with limited mobility. They also carry books in suitable formats including large print and talking book versions.

Reserving books​

If you can’t find the books you're looking for on the mobile library, you can order items that are in stock at other Leeds Libraries free of charge​.
