New children's library bus hits the road - Oxford Journal

Oxfordshire have three mobile libraries that cater for children. The latest one is a mobile children's centre, but I may have mentioned that after seeing it at the Mobile meet. It was shortly after then that I managed to observe it in action, during the first time that it had been out in a holiday period. It is beautifully appointed, with a plasma screen to show presentations and video's to parents and lots of toys for babies and toddlers. The two ladies who run the vehicle are both very experienced child care experts and newly experience library assistants. they have picked up the skills really quickly.








Parents were greeted with the offer of a hot drink, and children were read to and borrowed lots of books. Everyone seemed very impressed with the bright and relaxed atmosphere and we all got treated to some nursery rhymes spontaneously sang to us by one of the three year olds.

Book illustrations adorn new Norfolk mobile library - Norfolk News - EDP24

This is not what I would term A Children's Mobile Library, it is one run by the School Library service, but I thought I would add it anyway. It is good to find a mention of a new vehicle in a newspaper.
