This Hub Library will over time take over from the B&NES Mobile Library service which will move on to service communities without one. We are arranging to ensure that everyone who uses the Mobile will not lose out.
The Home Library Service arranges for a volunteer to bring books to a resident’s house who cannot get out much.
Dial A Ride to the HUB
