Cork County’s Mobile Libraries

Project Description

Serving Rural Communities

The mobile libraries deliver a library service to rural communities that do not have access to our branch library service.

The mobile libraries carry a wide range of adult and children’s books, along with audio books, Internet access and a free request service for books not in stock. The mobile library service has been an integral part of Cork County Council’s response to the reading and information needs of the public since the early 1960s.

Despite an expanded branch network, the mobile library service still plays a key role in delivering a library service to isolated communities, those with limited access to transport, people with disabilities and young people. The mobile library brings the local authority service to the heart of the rural community.
