FLINTSHIRE'S mobile library service is to be relaunched.

Aura Leisure and Libraries' mobile library service visits villages across the county on a three weekly basis.

The service visits locations where it is difficult for residents to access the organisation's static libraries.

Aura has now announced that a new mobile library vehicle is to be introduced to help run the service and to celebrate, the service is to be relaunched with an event at Deeside Leisure Centre between 10.30am and 2pm today (Friday).

An Aura spokesman said: "Residents can use their current library card or join the library on board.

"The mobile library carries a selection of books suitable for all ages, including large print and audio books in English and Welsh.

"Any item in stock anywhere in North Wales can also be provided on request.

"The Aura mobile library is fully accessible, with a lift for people with mobility impairments.

“We welcome all Flintshire residents to come along on March 1 and meet David Grieve, mobile library assistant/driver and view our new Aura Mobile Library vehicle and the service available to Flintshire residents.”

The vehicle, purchased in partnership with Flintshire Council, will deliver books across the county visiting rural villages, nurseries and schools every three weeks giving access to Flintshire residents who do not have immediate access to a local library.
