The supermobile will begin its travels by returning to Hunmanby on Saturday July 25.

It will be in the Bayley Gardens lay-by, Bridlington Street, in the heart of the village from 10am to 12pm.

North Yorkshire County Council staff are ringing round regular library users to ask what books they would like.

If you would like some library books and have not been contacted, the library staff will be able to choose some books for you on the day.

Books already on loan may be returned to the library, where they will then put into quarantine.

It is not be possible to board the bus at the moment due to the 2 metre advice on staying safe.

If you live in Hunmanby and would like books collected and delivered to your door, or are not able to get to the Mobile Library on Saturday and would like to have some new books to read, please ring Nick Harvey of Hunmanby Mobile Library Users on 07895 981483 and he and a team of village volunteers will aim to help ensure you have reading matter for the next few weeks.

The mobile library will not be coming to Hunmanby again until Saturday 22nd August, once every 4 weeks, rather than fortnightly.

This is due to a revised rota to ensure that the Mobile Library only visits one location a day to keep staff and library users safe.
