Mobile Library

The Mobile Library stops fortnightly on Thursdays in Rocombe Cross at Spring Bank 15.30 – 15.50; and in the Village Hall Car Park 16.00 – 17.00. 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.
  • Non-fiction books, Large Print, and children’s books can be reserved FREE.
  • You can even reserve books online, and collect them from the mobile library.
  • Children have extra fun joining the Book Track and Summer Reading Challenge.

Devon Libraries also runs a Home Library Service in partnership with the WRVS:

Love reading but you can’t get to your library?

The Home Library Service can bring books and CDs to your door for FREE. If you’re not able to come to the library, or not able to carry your items, the Home Library Service can deliver books to you! The service provides:

  • Free delivery and collection at flexible times
  • A wide choice of titles
  • Large print books, audio books and CDs
  • Free reservations
  • No fines

Items are delivered by trained and security-checked volunteers from WRVS who will treat your confidentiality as a priority. For more information phone 0845 155 1001 or email devlibs@devon.gov.uk

Would you like to make a difference to people’s lives?

We’re looking for people to spend a few hours each month selecting and delivering books and CDs to people who have difficulty getting out and about.

We will pay your mileage and you could make a real difference. For more information phone 0845 155 1001.

The Mobile Librarian has timetables for 2013, and fliers for both the Mobile Library Service and the Home Library Service that can be distributed by willing volunteers.
