For over 30 years the mobile library has taken library services out into many diverse communities across the city.
Temporary New Stop Announced!
We're pleased to announce a temporary new stop for all our customers in West Heath. Until further notice the Mobile Library will visit Houldey Road every Monday morning, between 10am - 12pm, starting on Monday 1 August. Please see the location map and timetable in the Downloads section for more details. Look forward to seeing you all in West Heath!
Address: Unit 14, Gravelly Industrial Park, Tyburn Road, Erdington, Birmingham, B24 8HZ
Everyone is welcome to join the Mobile Library. You can register with us or you can use your existing Birmingham library card on the vehicle. Just remember that you can only have a maximum of 10 items out at any one time. The Mobile Library vehicle carries over 3,500 items of stock for adults, young people and children of all ages. The stock is changed frequently and new items are added regularly.
The Mobile Library has access to the full library catalogue and operates a free reservation service for any items you may wish to order. You can return items from other Birmingham libraries at any Mobile library stop too. The Mobile Library vehicle is also fitted with a lift allowing for easy access.
The Mobile Library runs to a set timetable which is available to view or download on the right hand side of this page. The majority of stops are visited weekly with the exception of stops visited on Wednesdays which are fortnightly and Saturdays which are every four weeks.
All Mobile Library stops are subject to review and possible changes throughout the year. The Mobile Library may have to cancel stops at short notice due to inclement weather conditions or essential vehicle maintenance. Please make sure we have your telephone number if you wish to be informed of any stop cancelations. We will try to ensure as little disruption to the schedule as possible during these times. The Mobile Library vehicle will attempt to park in the same spot on each visit. As this may not always be possible, we will park in the safest location as close to the regular spot as we can.
The Mobile Library Service does not deliver directly to individual homes. If you love reading but age, disability or caring prevents you visiting the library, then please contact Library Services at Home on 0121 464 1118 to see if you are eligible for a home delivery.
We look forward to seeing you!
