Mobile Branch Library

Visiting every corner of the Whanganui District (at least the bits we can get to) the Mobile Branch Library is a highly utilised and much loved part of our library service.

Wherever you see the Mobile Library parked up you can climb on board and explore it if you’ve never been on before.  It provides a service for the whole community with books for all ages and interests.  There are also magazines, DVDs and talking books to amuse and entertain.   

Graham, Dawn, Wigs and Esther are the crew who drive the library bus around town and out into the surrounding countryside.  They are a friendly, helpful bunch.  Very keen to meet you and to sign up new members.
