Bookmobile to visit Peninsula

Readers on the Peninsula can now easily access new novels with Central Coast Council’s Bookmobile hitting the streets from February 8.

The Bookmobile aims to visit selected nursing homes and community stops across the Coast to help provide communities which are unable to access library branches with resources.

The van will operate on a two-week timetable from February through to April, with the Peninsula to be visited in the second week of the schedule (beginning February 15).

On the Tuesday, the bookmobile will visit Empire Bay’s post office on Kendall Rd between 9,30am and 10am, Wagstaffe’s Community Hall from 10,30am to 11,15am, and then Bensville’s Kallaroo Rd near the park from 11.40am to 12.30pm.

And then on Fridays, the bookmobile will stop at Patonga’s Progress Hall at the Corner of Brisk St and Bay St between 9.30am and 10.15am, before heading to Pearl Beach’s Memorial Community Hall from 10.30am to 11.15am.

Members can reserve library items online and select the Bookmobile as their collection point – this can also be done via Council’s library app.

The van will be running on a reduced timetable with no stops for schools or childcare facilities following COVID-19 health guidelines.

However, the timetable is subject to change if health directives improve.

Residents can apply for a new location to be added to the timetable by emailing
