Mobile library visits facing the chop due to lack of interest

THE mobile library service in Oxfordshire is set to be revamped.

The county council is planning to scrap stops where its library vehicles have very few or no visitors, including 28 in the Henley area.

These include four stops in Henley, three in Goring and two in Shiplake.

In a statement, the council said: “Oxfordshire County Council is committed to delivering a comprehensive, high quality and efficient library service and bringing mobile library services to people who may struggle to get to a library building, such as young people and their parents or carers, older people and those with disabilities.

“We have recently reviewed our mobile library service and found that, while the service is clearly valued, many of the current stops are not very well used.
