Mobile Library Service
The Mobile Library service remains unavailable but we are expanding our Libraries offer.
The following libraries will begin our phased re-opening. The opening times have been reduced to allow for enhanced preparation and cleaning to be carried out daily.
- Kingston Library and Bletchley Library open on Tuesday 28 July 2020
- Newport Pagnell Library, Westcroft Library and Wolverton Library open on Tuesday 4 August 2020
These libraries will be open 5 days a week: 10am-4pm Tuesday to Friday and 10am-12noon on Saturday.

The mobile library carries a wide selection of items for borrowing, including:
- Books - both fiction and non-fiction
- Large print books
- Books on CD
- Children's books - both fiction and non-fiction (useful for homework)
- Board books and picture books for babies and toddlers
Staff can access the catalogue to check the availability of an item at any of the Milton Keynes Libraries and can search the internet to find local information.
Remember that all library members have access to eAudiobooks, eBooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers for free! Full details are on the Digital Books web page.
Don't worry. The Mobile Library has an access lift to help those who have difficulty using the steps.
If you find it difficult to visit any of the libraries, perhaps the Home Library Service will help.
If the service is cancelled or delayed we will telephone a local contact for your stop whenever possible and they will attempt to notify customers.
If you miss the mobile library visit and want to renew items on your library card, you can phone one of our libraries. When you ring tell us that you normally use the Mobile Library. The renewal dates will then adjust to the timetable of visits to your area.
Items borrowed from the Mobile Library can be returned to any library in Milton Keynes.
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 CD.
All current library charges and fines apply to items borrowed from the mobile library service.
If you already have a Milton Keynes Library Card you can borrow items from the Mobile Library immediately. Being a member of Milton Keynes Libraries gives you access to all 9 libraries plus the Mobile Library.
If you don't have a card you can join on the vehicle. Please bring an official document showing your identity and address. It's helpful if you can also show something with a copy of your signature. You can also join at any library and someone will be able to help you if necessary.
Documents used to prove your address must have been issued within the last three months. Acceptable documents are:
- driving licence
- bank/credit card statement
- electricity, gas, water or phone bill
- rent book
- Council Tax document
- State Benefit document
Other documents may be acceptable at the discretion of library staff.
You will be given your card to start borrowing items on the same day.
The Mobile Library stops at different locations and follows a regular timetable (PDF, 358KB). You can print the current timetable (there is a link at the top of this page) or view it below.
All enquiries about the Mobile Library service should be made to Milton Keynes Central Library or you can use the Online Enquiry Form.
Please note that the Thursday stop for Two Mile Ash School does not start until 27 February 2020.
