Bedford Borough's Library Link Service brings the library service to people who might otherwise be unable to use them.

News Alert - New Routes Announced

Following a consultation earlier this year which saw over 80% of respondents agreeing with the proposals, changes are being introduced to the Mobile Library and Library Link service.

These changes will see the timetable reorganised in response to the consultation results by targeting stops where they are most needed in the community, and every village and care home that currently receives the service will continue to. Residents will also benefit from new Mobile Library and Library Link vehicles, bringing an improved and more cost efficient service.

The Mobile Library service takes our fantastic libraries on the road visiting communities across the Borough, while the Library Link service serves residents who are unable to reach their local library making regular visits to individual housebound users, residential homes, and sheltered housing scheme.

The new routes will be in place from Monday 2nd October. In the weeks leading up to this, customers will be given information about any changes which affect them and the timetables will be published on the Borough website.

If you are not able to leave your home and visit your local library, Library Link is for you! 
This service, using our library link vehicles and volunteers, to deliver books to your door. The service is available throughout Bedford Borough, to young and old alike.  You can use the service even if you are confined to your home for just a few weeks.
