Our Supermobile library carries around 3,000 items of stock, including books, DVDs and audio books.
The stock is varied and will satisfy most tastes, including those users who need information or those who are interested in local history. Disabled access is provided. Access to the internet is also available via our satellite link.
The Supermobile will call at 22 locations on a rolling fortnightly timetable and will stay at each location for two hours, giving you much longer to use the service.

You can join the library service by visiting the Supermobile at your nearest stop. When you have joined, you will be given a library card. This card can be used at any library in North Yorkshire.
The Supermobile has a wide range of books and other library stock. It also provides access to the full range of materials held by the library and information service. You may request items from the Supermobile as you would with a local library. Any items that you request will be available for you to collect from the Supermobile on a later visit to your area.
If you miss a Supermobile visit and you need to return borrowed items, you can return them to the Supermobile on its next visit. Alternatively, you can also return any items borrowed from the Supermobile to any local library. If this is not possible, then there are other ways of renewing your books and other items, including online and over the telephone. For more details, see the libraries - loan renewals page. Please note, charges do apply on the Supermobile.
If the Supermobile does not stop in your area or you are not able to visit a local library, then you might be able to use the home library service. It provides free home delivery of books, audio books, music on CD, DVDs, large print books, children's books and information to people who find it difficult to get to their local library.
