Mobile library

Midlothian's mobile library is visiting lots of our communities, providing a library service for those whose branch is temporarily closed due to Covid-19.

From 10 May we are introducing a new timetable with some East Lothian locations.

At this time we cannot allow access to the vehicle due to government guidelines and social distancing rules.

However there are drop off and collection points at the entrance to return any items you might have at home or collect:

If you want to order books to collect from our mobile library please complete our Reserve and Collect form and let us know what types of books you enjoy or are looking for, how many and where you would like to collect from and someone will be in touch to let you know when your collection is ready.
