Mobile Library and Home Delivery service

Shetland Library, Mobile Library and Delivery Van

In response to feedback and increasing customer demand, from Monday 4 July 2022, we will be expanding our service in rural areas. We will be offering customers visits from our big Mobile Library van or delivering a pre-selected collection of Library books to your home with our smaller delivery van.

Please note that Mobile Library visits and home deliveries will now operate to a 6 week rotation, 3 weeks apart.  So, for example, either the big Mobile Library van or the small delivery van will be in your area once every 3 weeks.  We would like to encourage folk to choose their own books on the Mobile Library, rather than use it as a delivery van.  Please click on the links below to see when the Mobile Library van or the delivery van will be in your area.
