Overview and contact

For over 30 years the mobile library has taken library services out into many diverse communities across the city.

Everyone is welcome to join the Mobile Library. You can register with us or you can use your existing Birmingham library card on the vehicle. You can borrow a maximum of 10 items at any one time (including items borrowed from our other libraries). The Mobile Library vehicle carries over 3,500 items of stock for adults, young people and children of all ages. The stock is changed frequently and new items are added regularly.

The Mobile Library has access to the full library catalogue. It operates a free reservation service for any items you may wish to order. You can return items from other Birmingham libraries at any Mobile Library stop too. The Mobile Library vehicle is also fitted with a lift allowing for easy access.
