Library on wheels ‘a big hit’

Library on wheels ‘a big hit’

Rolling out the fleet: The new mobile library

Students in Carmarthenshire are being offered the chance to win free music and DVD rentals for a year.

Hop on board the mobile library at the Student Takeover Event in Carmarthen Town Centre (near Café Nero) next Thursday, sign up and you will be entered into a draw for the exclusive #Y Clwb card.

A wide range of online services are available for students on Carmarthenshire Mobile Libraries including Comix plus, Zinio Magazines, Theory Test Pro, Atomic Training and Artist Works.

The Student Takeover Event kicks off at 5pm with live bands performing outside Guildhall Square. Over 1,000 students are expected to join in the event where they’ll be able to snap up huge bargains and cut-price products.

The new ‘more than books’ mobile library fleet is already proving a big hit with communities both with the young and the old.

Whether you want to print off your boarding passes, research your family tree, surf the net for jobs, Google it or pick up one of our new books, get on board with our new mobile library service.

Launched last month, the revolutionary service on wheels is stocked full of support and is bigger and better than before with new routes and locations on its map.

The three new mobile vehicles are decked out with the latest technology including three Ipads, a large screen information point TV streamlining important information, a printer and free internet access. A wide range of new books to suit any avid reader and are refreshed every week.

The council’s executive board member for leisure, Cllr Peter-Hughes Griffiths said: “The mobile library offers a lot of online resources beneficial to students as well as books and films. The #Y Clwb card entitles the user to free music and DVD rentals for 12 months on joining the library. There are only 100 of these cards in existence so they are quite rare and difficult to get hold of.”
