Using the mobile library service
If you live in Suffolk or a neighbouring county complete the online joining form and we’ll post your card to you.
Alternatively, visit any Suffolk Mobile library with proof of identification and we’ll give you a card.
It’s free. Children and young people up to the age of 16 need a guarantor. To use any of our online services you’ll also need a PIN. If you don’t know your PIN contact a member of staff, telephone 01473 351249 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Books on mobile libraries can be borrowed for 8 weeks. If you don’t return a book on time we’ll apply an overdue charge. The charge rises for each mobile library visit you miss. If the mobile library is unable to call we’ll take this into account when we calculate the charge.
