What if I have difficulty getting on the vehicle?

Don't worry. The Mobile Library has an access lift to help those who have difficulty using the steps.

What happens if I miss the Mobile Library?

If the service is cancelled or unavoidably delayed because of bad weather or a breakdown we will, whenever possible, telephone a local contact for your stop who will attempt to notify customers.

If you miss the mobile library visit and want to renew items on your library card, you can do so by phoning one of our libraries. When you ring please make it clear to us that you use the Mobile Library as renewal dates take account of when the Mobile Library next visits your area.

Items borrowed from the mobile library can be returned to any library in Milton Keynes.

Is there a charge?

It is free to join the library and to borrow books, magazines, eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers. There are hire fees to borrow books on tape and CD.

All current library charges and fines apply to items borrowed from the mobile library service.
