A new container library has hit the road fully stocked with a range of new books for residents to enjoy.

The library on wheels replaces an older container and will stop at the same sites as the former container library: Woodlands Park, Shifford Crescent, Wraysbury, Holyport and Sunningdale.

Councillor Samantha Rayner, cabinet member for culture and communities, said: “It’s great that we’re continuing to invest in our borough’s libraries and are expanding and improving our reading facilities.

“The new container library is full of hundreds of great books and resources, and its mobility means that it can be enjoyed all over the borough and we can bring council services directly to our residents in their communities.”

Stocked with books, eBooks, eAudio books, large print books, and eMagazines, residents with a library card can borrow up to 30 items at a time, all using our quick and easy self-service kiosk.

The self-service kiosk will also allow residents to make payments for council services such as Council Tax and green bin subscription.

The staff are also on hand to provide assistance and direct residents to services.

Books can be loaned for three weeks and can be renewed up to four times.

Children’s audiobooks are also free if you’re under 18 years old, as are all other audiobooks if you have visual impairment.
