Mobile library

The mobile library is open for you to board and browse. Some safety measures are still in place.

We encourage all of our customers to:

  • wear a face covering if possible
  • sanitise hands on entry
  • respect the space of other customers and our staff

We are unable to safely operate our step lift at a limited number of stops.

If your circumstances mean that it is not possible for you to access any of our libraries in person, including the Mobile Library, you may be eligible for our home library service. Please contact us via phone or email for further details.

For details about our home library service, email us at library.volunteers@n-somerset.gov.uk

Safety and COVID-19

There are still some measures in place to ensure the safety of our staff and customers:

Staying safe on board

  • we are encouraging all our customers to respect each other’s space. To help prevent overcrowding, we may only allow a limited number of people on board at any one time
  • this means you may have to queue for a short time before you can board the vehicle.  A traffic light system will show you when you are able to enter
  • we encourage all our customers to wear a mask while you are on board the vehicle, unless you are medically exempt
  • we encourage all our customers to sanitise your hands upon boarding the vehicle, using the sanitiser provided

Loans

  • the amount of stock on the vehicle will be slightly reduced

Returns

  • if you only need to return items, you can do so without queuing by dropping the items in the return boxes outside the vehicle

In order to keep our staff and customers as safe as possible, we ask for your co-operation in following the above guidance.
