Big READ Bus

The Big Read Bus connects you to a dynamic and magic place - your library!

We don't just have books to lend you; we have movies, CDs, talking books, computer games, Wi-Fi, and e-resources.

Bring your pre-schooler to the library and enjoy story time, "giggle and wiggle"& Rhyme time.

High School students can access relevant, up to date Study Skills resources, essays on contemporary topics and browse subscription databases.

You can join a knitting club, start a book club, join us for one off events or attend a training session where you can pick up tips on using your devices and technology.

You can access the internet or just sit and read the local paper (we'll supply the paper and the comfortable chair)

When you see us in your neighbourhood, come and visit the Big Read Bus - the library that comes to you
