Mobile libraries

If you live in Reading and have difficulty visiting your library, you can request our free home visiting service. We usually visit every three weeks and can bring books you have requested.

The mobile library van takes 2,200 books to care homes, sheltered housing, day centres and other establishments around Reading and is fully accessible. You can request specific books or subject areas, as well as large print and talking books.
