Love for bright new library van

Kempsey Shire Council

Lots of love from the community as the new library van rolled into town at Hat Head and Crescent Head for its debut this week.

Thank you to the community for such a wonderful turnout at both launch events. Book lovers were celebrating being able to browse and borrow a great collection of books and resources right on their doorstep.

New library members were treated to a free library bag on the day, and excitement was high as our library team gave away prizes and everyone discussed their favourite literary works over some light refreshments.

Designed to better serve our community and make the borrowing experience more accessible, inside the new mobile library you will find a modern fit out, thoughtfully organised shelves, stairs with railings and increased space to facilitate a more comfortable borrowing experience.

So when you see it’s bold bright colours next roll into town, be sure to come along and say hi!

How does our mobile library service work?

Every fortnight, this library on wheels visits Hat Head and Crescent Head to provide a mobile library service to our residents. Residents can also reserve items across the Mid North Coast Library Cooperative, which can be collected from the van during our fortnightly visits to these areas.

You can browse reading material including books, magazines, DVDs, audiobooks, junior fiction, junior non-fiction, and graphic novels, collect the items you have requested, return items, sign up for a library membership, and more. For library lovers who are incapacitated or ill and are unable to visit our library branches, our home lending service makes deliveries each fortnight.
