Mobile library service

Our mobile library service provides a free library service to residents of the Wakefield District.

The mobile library is an easily accessible vehicle with a lift that can accommodate wheelchair users and those with mobility problems.

We provide

  • Free library membership
  • A range of materials for loan including:
    • Fiction
    • Non-fiction
    • Large print
    • Talking books for both adults and children

Where and when does the mobile library visit?

The mobile library currently follows a three-week schedule around the district for pre-arranged drop-offs only. If you would like to know where the mobile library stops near you, please contact the mobile library team. Details are at the bottom of this page.

We do our best to keep to the times but occasionally, due to unavoidable circumstances such as a vehicle breakdown or bad weather, a route or stop may have to be cancelled.

We always publish details of cancellations on the Wakefield Council website and where possible contact customers by telephone.

The Mobile Library in your own home - it’s free

If you, or someone you know, find it difficult to get to a local library then the home delivery service can bring books to you.

Who can use the service?

We deliver to anyone living in the Wakefield District who, due to long term illness or disability is unable to visit their local library or a mobile library stop.

Each month we will bring you a selection of materials to your home, all carefully chosen with you in mind. We will talk to you about your reading interests and select an assortment of books we think you’ll enjoy. These can be in a variety of formats including:

  • Hardback
  • Paperback
  • Large print
  • Books on CD and Cassette

You can also request books you particularly want to read and we will try and locate these from our other libraries - just ask the driver when they call.

Getting in touch

If you would like information about the mobile library routes or to find out how to register for the home delivery service, please contact the mobile library team.
