Each mobile holds 2,500-3,000 items of stock. Mobiles have a selection of books, videos, talking books and music CDs. A proportion of this stock is changed on a fortnightly basis.
Each item borrowed is issued for a period of 4 weeks. If the item is still required after this time it is possible to renew the item on the mobile. Any overdue items will incur a charge.
Wherever possible vehicle maintenance is carried out on a Friday when the mobile library is not on the road. Occasionally the mobile library has a breakdown and requires assistance resulting in it being unable to continue with its normal service. In event of this happening we will contact you by telephone to let you know the mobile will not be calling. Please ensure we have your contact telephone number so we can keep you informed should anything happen.
Our mobile libraries operate in some very rural and remote areas of Aberdeenshire. In the event of adverse weather conditions it may not be possible for the mobile library to provide a normal service. If this should happen the Outreach Librarian will contact Northsound, NECR and Waves Radio to make announcements with regard to where the mobile will not be calling that day. Please ensure you are listening to your radio if you are unsure if the mobile will be calling.
A mobile library calls in many areas. Find out which mobile stops in your area and its frequency. Please contact the Outreach Librarian for up-to-date information on dates and times.
