Lancashire is a wonderful county with gorgeous little villages and amazing picturesque views. Sometimes it is also isolated, that is where the Mobile Libraries comes in. Like me, you might not know this service is available, so I thought I should spread the word!
We have wonderful Libraries in the county. Through them you can not only rent books, but also CDs, DVDs, large print and audio books for yourself and your family. Libraries these days are also a lot more versatile and you can surf the internet and attend music, art and "meet the author" events as well as finding out more information on what is going on in your area. To check what is going on in a Library near you (Lancashire only) click here.
If you have kids, there is usually a dedicated children's area. My local, Clitheroe Library, has a cute little Children's Library downstairs including computers and a little shop with books to help your child with their school work including counting, times tables, telling the time and spelling. They also provide a variety of events and activities. For more information click here.
The Mobile Libraries are different. They are obviously smaller and move around to provide adults and children with easy access to books. I came across this one in the tiny little village of Dunsop Bridge, in between Waddington Fell and the Trough of Bowland! If you own a Lancashire Library Card you will be able to use it like you would in any library. You can also return books you have rented from your local library and vice-versa.
Personally, I was quite impressed by the fit out! To find out if there is a Mobile Library visiting your area (Lancashire only) and where it will be click here.
Give it a try and support our libraries. You know what they say: use it or lose it.
