Mobile Library returns from 13 July!

Monday 26 October, 2020, by admin

Heidi and Ivybridge Mobile Library will be back on the road bringing books to you from July 13 th 2020. To make sure that customers and staff are safe, we will only be offering a new type of contactless service for the time being. It’s called Choose & Collect.

If you opt for a Choose & Collect delivery library staff will ask you about your reading likes and dislikes and select up to 5 books for you based on your preferences. The books will be issued to your library card, placed in a bag, and you simply collect them from your regular stop.

We are currently working through our records and calling as many customers as we can to offer this service. If you have not heard from us a week before your timetabled visit and would like a Choose & Collect delivery, please contact Ivybridge Library by email or calling 01752 893140 during their normal opening hours. Remember to tell library staff you are a customer of the mobile library and which stop you use when you get in touch.

New customers are also welcome. Please contact Ivybridge Library to set up a new mobile library membership, and we will endeavour to deliver to you too. You do need a mobile library card even if you are already a member of a library without wheels. You can find an A-Z of where we visit and our timetable on our webpage

Mobile Library Assistant Heidi is very glad to be out on the road again serving her customers. She hopes to be able to allow readers safely back on the mobile library tochoose for themselves in the not too distant future. In the meantime, please bear with library staff while we get used to this new way of working and follow the instructions when you arrive at your stop.
