Mobile Library

We who are at home during the week need to support our Mobile Library Van.  At present it comes to the village once a fortnight on a Monday afternoon, stopping in Green Lane at 2.00 p.m., the Peacock at 2.20 p.m. and the Village Hall at 2.40 p.m.

It is an excellent service carrying a good range of books at all times.  The van also carries jigsaws, large print books and much more.  Obviously the number carried at any one time is limited, but books can be ordered for you from other libraries.

At present you can take a book out for a month, but next year it will be for three weeks.  Up to now there has been no system of fines for overdue books, as is the case in the town and village libraries.

Keith, the driver, tells me that it will be off the road from November 28th to January in preparation for a new vehicle.  He informs me that the van will come on 1st, 15th and 29th October and on 12th November.

Happy reading!

[A quick search of the WCC website produced the information that the library service is replacing all its vans by new greener ones which will be lighter and able to cross bridges that the present ones cannot do and go down roads where the present ones fear to roll.  The changeover is due to start in October but presumably the Wellesbourne mobile which serves us is slated to be one of the later ones to be replaced.  The change in loan period quoted by Joyce is presumably to bring the mobile libraries into line with the static ones, which have had three-week loan periods for some time now.  Quite how the authorities intent to match up the two and three-week cycles is anybody’s guess.  Ed.]

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
