New mobile and Library Link routes

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 by making regular visits to individual housebound users, residential homes, and sheltered housing schemes.


Following a consultation earlier this year which saw over 80% of respondents agreeing with the proposals, changes have been made to both services.  These changes include stops where they are most needed in the community. Residents will also benefit from new Mobile Library and Library Link vehicles, bringing an improved and more cost efficient service. 


You can find the new timetable on the Virtual Library.

Tablet Help at Bedford Central Library

Do you own a tablet but don't get as much use out of it as you'd like? Maybe you've heard library staff talking about e-audio and e-magazines and you'd like to find out more?


Book a 30 minute Tablet Help session at Bedford Central Library with a member of staff or IT Buddy, and you can get some guidance on how to get the best out of your tablet, as well as an introduction to the fabulous free library e-resources, including e-music and e-newspapers! 


The next Tablet Help sessions will be taking place on the 13th and 27th November. These sessions are very popular so please book a place in advance at Bedford Central Library.
