New Mobile stop to be trialled at Lincoln Event Centre  - 20 Jul 2015

The Selwyn Libraries Mobile library bus will be rolling into the Lincoln Event Centre carpark from Saturday 18 July 2015. The library on wheels will be open from 9:30am - 12:30pm to allow busy families attending sporting events at the facility to fit in a library visit at the same time.

The new stop will be trialled over four Saturday, and if successful it will become a permanent fixture on the timetable.

Everyone is welcome on the mobile bus. Current library members need only their library card to access the service. New members are welcome - just sign up online or on board the bus with your ID and proof of address and our friendly staff will issue you a library card. This card can be used at any one of our four branches as well as the mobile.

The stop is one of a number of exciting new plans for the mobile library which include a presence at local events over the summer. Up to date timetables and visiting information are posted weekly on our Facebook page or you can view them on our website.
